Trapped in the corner of life

Updated on May 9, 2011

Trapped in the corner
of this life
with nowhere to go
left without strive

Faces dull
without expression
oblivious to
any of life’s lessons

Completely numbed
and without emotion
taking on life
with overly caution

Never a step
outside the line
thinking beyond
considered a crime

Going through
the motions of life
a daily routine
senseless and dry

Pretending to be
fully satisfied
yet wanting to run
wanting to hide

But they are trapped
in the corner of life
with nowhere to go
left without strive

      I started in the corner with a dunces cap on, some things never change.
