Free

Running,
Cutting my feet on thorns,
I don't care.
The curtain of green above me
Lets in tiny rays of gold.
Running so fast I'm soaring,
I'm touching the green sky.
I dance in an open patch,
The sun spotlighting me,
And I'm the star.
Laughing so loud the birds fly from their nests,
And I am free.
Nothing matters anymore,
Nothing makes sense.
The forest calls my name,
But I don't answer,
I just run,
Faster and faster,
Farther than I've ever gone.
And I am still,
Silent,
Alone in darkness,
Trapped.
