“Skink” – Muntinlupa, 24 July 2016

don’t you
feel
at times
like you’re
hemmed in
a trap;
gilded cage
comfort zone
inescapable?

and all
you
can do
is watch
the world
go by
minding its
business
while you
feel constrained
powerless
impotent
in your
helplessness
in your
bewilderment.

and finally,
you lose
it:
tear through
rip through
claw through
the bars
speak your
mind
get your
revenge;
and be
free
at last.
