Look To The Sky

Look To The Sky

A solid shiny steel cage
enclosed within
Vast and high
I raise my eyes
and feel so small
There are no foot holds
on which to climb
Trapped inside
I slip and slide
now too tired to try
My voice is lost
bouncing against the cold metal walls
an echo in the darkness
My frozen breath hangs in the stillness
of this doorless cave
which has swallowed me whole

I am sorry for you struggling so hard right now. Love from my heart to yours.

My therapist asked me to write a poem about the wall that I had built around myself, and this is what came out.

I can so relate to what you have written. You truly have a talent for writing. Keep it up. Get your story out.
