Poem: Free At Last

Confusion, Determination

these terms run wild in my mind

Captured like an animal

In a cage, I’m confined

Escaping in danger

now mentally enslaved

tormented, beaten,

welts permanently engraved.

Running, being chased

by ferocious hunt dogs

Contradictory statements

of my inner monologue

Overworked, underpaid

Extreme work conditions

Undereducated,

yet we still have ambition.

A long adventurous journey

traveling thru the town

Creeping in the night

Knowing I’m freedom bound.

Long nights alone and cold

scared, frighten

yet extremely bold.

Running, sweating,

heart beating fast

Praying to God

Finally Free At Last.
