Prisons

We are her
Living in prisons
Never mind
Us, our walking the streets
As if we are free
 
We are here
Living in prisons
Our mouths are sealed
We don’t speak
We only bow
 
We are here
Living in prisons
Our hands are tied
We don’t work
We only gesture
 
We are here
Living in prisons
Our legs are in chains
We don’t walk
We only trek
 
We are here
Living in prisons
Our hearts are pierced
We don’t live
We only pretend
 
We are here
Living in prisons
Our minds are death
We don’t reason
 
We only survive on treasons
Here in these prisons
