This is Not All We AreWe are imprisoned, in an open cage,This is Not All We Are2 years ago in Visual & Found Poetry More Like This
and through the cage,
we’re the same.
We reach for infinity and
our arms touch briefly which
almost makes me think...
there must be something more.
Beyond the gate,
we can light the darkest night.
But I still believe that
sometimes the stars and the clouds
will explode alone...
without anyone waiting or
expecting something more.
They tried to tell us we’re
but there’s beauty in the breakdown
and we are broken down...
But we must believe,
and hope and pray
and wish for something more.
We had promised ourselves lies,
inside our cage of secrets...
And so we try again,
like ugly birds in a beautiful cage,
to reach out to anything
or anyone else,
for a dream of something more.
