Captive – Written Saturday 11th April 2009 (Aged 34)

Captive

i will not be held captive
in a call or room
emotions are the keys –
that shift with the moon
i will not bend my knees
be forced,
from my wild open country
or strapped to the trees
i will not run out of juice
before hope has run out on me
i will clamber and climb
and never fall into the sea
i will take each event –
and establish that it is me
i will not be kept –
like a new found thing
i watch the clouds shift –
on wonderful feelings
i will not be held captive
in a cell or room
