Random Poem:

Running From Hope

These ropes on my wrists
Brought more security then any wall
God or guard ever could
We call them restraints
The Rococonic-
Freedom you'll never comprehend,
You must be in upon it
Others think it’s demeaning
To be made less then human
But it’s just seeking safety in the dark
More love and honesty in bruises,
Then acid laced promises
