I'm in a jewel-embedded house.

But it feels like a cage.
I'm supposed to feel happy, secure, safe.
I don't. I want to escape,
Free myself.
Its merciless power is sucking me in.
Trapping me, controlling me.
I scream in pain, anger.

Let me out! Let me out!


I look around,
and I see happiness, comfort.
Why can't I have this feeling?
Why not me? Why me?
Is this my destiny? My fate?
It all comes crashing down upon me.
My future is not in my hands,
It's beyond my control, my reach.

Let me out! Let me out!
