THE FOUR WALLS

Memories flash my mind like a wild fire

Terrorising me from my deepest wires

Not sure about what I was to do

Settled on fleeing, to run, to go

Four walls now surround me

Fearing they might tumble on me

I sit in the corner of my cage

Waiting for my turn to get the rage

No syllable should be left out

For we might be slaughtered throughout

They get bigger and better shares

Since they fly on the biggest shores

I get my cramps as I utter no word

I revive from my memories

Four walls still surround me
