Shackles

by mandaceehb

Panting softly

Exhausted

With animalistic grunts

She stretches the chains to their extremes

Break, she orders

But they heed not human command

Only a ringing sound of metal

As she rips on the chains 

And failure resounds around the cell

 

No escape

For she is shackled

Like so many of us

Chained by the invisible boundaries of this world
