Walls created by herself,

Of notions and fears unknown,

Confined into a shell of her own...

With a shrunken heart and chained spirit,

Feeling helpless and doomed,

Seeing nothing but darkness around...

Waiting for someone,

To open the door


Set her free…..

Will she be able to find the key??

Will she ever see the light??


Hold herself back only to perish!


OSI Prompt: Shackles


  1. she will have to help herself to find a way to get out of it, the key is within her....hope she will see the light.

  2. Hope will show the light; I know that to be true, one of my friends has such fears too, and she just believes she can get out of it, so she will do it :) you truly wrote on shackles, a lovely poem.
