The Caged Bird

Day 3 Prompt: “Make a story for this image.”
S__1851397

it dwells inside us all
unassuming
yet persistent
the voice that screams when no one else is listening
shatters the silence of the subconscious
begs to be heard
it is the urge to break out of this skin
of the vessel containing only parts and pieces
the rubberband stretched too thin
from the pressure of unwanted labels
we are none of the things they say we are
it tells us
this is you
I am you
let me free
let me free

-E.E.
