A Glass Wall

For too many years,
And too many fears,
All of the pain with
The sadness and tears.
Caught in that bell jar,
A transparent glass wall
Unable to reach out and
Removed from it all.
The world passes by, the
Deafening silence within,
I am trapped in the present
Like a laboratory specimen.
I want to pound on that glass,
Shouting "Let me out now",
Hoping someone will hear
my frantic pleas and sad vows.
But it is I who must slip under
That brittle glass wall, hoping
Just to be free from the pain of it all.

  1. I like this one, Dad. I don't remember reading it before. We all have glass walls and only the smart ones have learned not to throw stones.
