Poem: "Locked up"

Locked up – trapped
Fight against the bars –
They are stronger.
They overcome.

World goes by – fleeting
Cry out to be noticed
They turn their heads,
Smile – walk away.

Eyes of hopelessness – brimming
Whisper for a friend
No answer –
No one cares.

Years go by – no change
Buried in a prison
Handmade, self-contained,
But fear keeps trapping you.
