The Face of Capture

the face of freedom

By: Talyn Gray

o-O-o

Little girl, look at me,

Do you want to be free?

Skin that's pallid fair

With almond eyes and chestnut hair

Flying in the winds of Freedom,

Looking into the eyes of reliance

Have a drink with old man Rum

Don't dare stare in defiance.

-o-

I am the key to your being

What in me, are you seeing?

-o-

Pale skin in the shattered moon

Cold coal eyes belonging to a loon?

-o-

Oh, what woe you do depict,

Like legend Sir Mordred and Benedict

But I am the key to your existence;

Glare at me with such resistance

My little dear, you are so adorable

Behind those bars, hidden,

Mind so small; so deplorable

-o-

Can you see what is forbidden?

-o-

Little girl, look at me,

Do you want to be free?
