On Instagram, I got the prompt from a friend about school being like a prison. And this is something simple I came up with. XD Thank you for reading! (Simple because I hate Tuesdays and am tired. :P)

paper chains

and everywhere they'll touch

and everywhere they'll touch will leave prints of ink,

and everywhere they'll touch will leave prints of ink, stumbling along lined paper

and everywhere they'll touch will leave prints of ink, stumbling along lined paper frantically trying to smooth

and everywhere they'll touch will leave prints of ink, stumbling along lined paper frantically trying to smooth out creases around their eyes

and their minds and their hearts

and their minds and their hearts that they were told were too

and their minds and their hearts that they were told were too unruly

and their minds and their hearts that they were told were too unruly to exist in this space.

in this space, they'll make

in this space, they'll make paper chains and shackle

in this space, they'll make paper chains and shackle themselves to characters

in this space, they'll make paper chains and shackle themselves to characters and weave them into

in this space, they'll make paper chains and shackle themselves to characters and weave them into their scribbled-out ideas

in hope that one day,

in hope that one day, one day, they'll stand

in hope that one day, one day, they'll stand with their feet apart,

in hope that one day, one day, they'll stand with their feet apart, chests heaving through bare walls

in hope that one day, one day, they'll stand with their feet apart, chests heaving through bare walls whilst they're left wondering

why their future no longer pulses

why their future no longer pulses and why each day drags

why their future no longer pulses and why each day drags when a page is turned.
