Building my Cage

Born free?
Hardly.
Every action and reaction
Another bar on the cage
Every hurt and every pain
Another bar on the cage
Every time I cry aloud
Another bar on the cage
Every time I shout and rage
Another bar on the cage
Every time I fight for my right
Another bar on the cage
And when I defend myself?
Another bar on the cage
Whether anger or sorrow
Another bar on the cage
When I object and lobby
Another bar on the cage
Every word, every choice
Only cages me further
Now there’s no longer room,
Only enough to lie down
And sob silently
Which was what you wanted
