She grips onto the cold, steel bars

Reaching for freedom tastes so bitter

Like a cold winter sun that looks so warm and inviting

It nips at your skin the minute you step outside

She reaches for the bottom in a bottomless pit

Too stubborn to give up

Too frustrated to go on

She knows the shore is near

It keeps moving so far

Treading through rough seas

Tripping through treacherous roads

Darkness is all she sees

Hope is too dangerous to long for
