Flesh and Bone

I am someone
I am sure.
As real as the winds
That howl outside
This door.
As real as the walls,
The bricks an incarnadine
Skin, keeping me whole.
Trapping me within.
This sanctuary, a prison
From which I long to fly.
But even though I have wings
I am broken by the lies
That tie me here.
That won’t let me be,
Won’t let me soar.
Yet, I am someone.
I am sure.
