This was written in 1998 for a high school English class. About being a rebel and a pain of feeling like you don’t belong in this world!

Before I knew I got my wings 

They made a cage to fence me in 

Put me in chains and took the key

And made a prisoner out of me


But after all I realize

The strength that comes from being weak

I see the world behind the bars

Of prison that belongs to me


My will is forcing me to fight the pain

The instinct can’t be wrong:

The wild is calling from within

A prisoner of a dying world!

It's never easy to go your own way, and it can be lonely when you don't fit in. Excellent poetry.
