“Stuck”

Day 14 of 2012 November PAD challenge.

Stuck

I’ve been here for an eternity
Practically since I was born
I sleep and I wake here
Every night and morn

These white bars surround me
Even in my dreams
I think I’ll be here forever
At least, that’s how it seems

Although it’s quite comfortable too
I sometimes feel lonely here
Because everyone always leaves me
When I’m inside, they all disappear

I cry and laugh
I squeal and wail
I babble on and on
All to no avail

I am stuck here in this crib
Too little to climb out
I just can’t liberate myself
Growing up is the only way out!
