Written on 19th B'day

19 years ago
.
in my ma's womb i lay
the darkness suffocating me
its walls seem to say
you are a prisoner
.
i kicked and i pushed
and struggled in vain
with her each moan of pain
i smiled
.
i came out at last
covered with bloody waste
.
but
.
only the cage is bigger
am still a prisoner
.
and
.
the first breath
of life
was a cry
of anguish
.
echo-ing still
all over
.
