Prisoner to approval
I sit in the corner of my cell
painting pretty pictures of myself
overflowing with creative energy
yet begging for inspiration,
am I never to realise
the true art of life hiding within
the formlessness of just being?
Will I ever dare
go beyond the rusting bars
where freedom sits, waiting…
like a mother unable to cradle her young?
