Unfettered

Unfettered
~

Barred
Sentenced
… To drudgery
of another’s
Choice, soul
Thrashed about
Heart fluttered
Begged
Respite

Days
And nights
haze of
dazed
shadowy
Bars
black
white

childhood
conditioning
came
to rescue
began
talking
to a thimble
sized statue

day in
day out
this one-sided
talk continued
until one day
the statue
answered
back~
