Trapped - Poem for today

People don't understand what it's like.
To be trapped inside
To run away and hide
Where there is no sky
To be hidden
To be bed ridden
Listening to every lie
You don't know how it feels
To be defeated
Bashed, mistreated
Where you retreat inside
To feel neglected
To feel rejected
Knowing everybody lied
But here within my soul
I am elated
I am no longer berated
And I don't have to hide
No longer sedated
No more frustrated
People wondering if I had died
Now I know how it feels
To be someone
To be your one
Only one more goal to strive
No more silence
No more compliance
Because now I feel alive
