“nothing can set you free

when all your past flashes

right in front of your eyes

and your thoughts do not

let you move forward

and your mind decides

to create a cage so that

you don’t do the same things

because embarrassment, judgement, lack of support

are always there to stop you

and harden your heart”

Being caged by your past is a hard thing. And this poem was quite meh! Don’t forget tocheck out poetryhive for the prompts
