I’m a prisoner longing to be free,
And from this holding cell I yearn to flee.
Condemned to a lonely fate,
Consumed by bitterness and hate,
Towards the world, I call my own,
And perturbed by how little I’ve grown.
Trapped, and institutionalized by fear,
I seek no more than an ear to hear,
What I’ve endured throughout this tale,
And how I fought tooth and nail,
Only to find myself back where I started,
My progress meager, and all allies long since departed.
For what crime do you think I’m being punished?
I’m afraid to be human; Yes, I have no courage!
