The persona cries against the restraints of the system he is in. You might say he’s in school...

Chained to a creaker 

of a chair

the metal holds, my freedom-breakers,

i swear

 

write, write, write

what someone else has already penned;

I’m told to get it right

or

be banned banned banned

from leaving through that door,

door, door, what for

 

wouldn’t they let me out?

 

Here, waiting to finish my sentence

factoid left half-done

i see through this pretense

of the system,

 

can I run?

 

From this information-filler

nonsense

and not fear a hope-killer

looming, croner in a corner

 

i do not wish to act

anymore.

these textbooks fed to me; a quack!

a bore.

 

they say I can’t

survive without them

they’re right

if they never release me.

 

enough, i insist.

One year more, they persist

and they always win,

because this is their game

it has always been.

 

their system, they’re the system.

 

But one day, I’ll escape.

Yet, that would be my history

but they’ll never be a part of me.

 

Because by then, my life would be

my own.

I’ll finally be free.
