Five feet away from me 
is the door to freedom 
is liberty mocking me?
as I sit shackled by patriarchdom.

Nearest to me is my dignity
shackled too by the chains of misery 
he is still but suffers 
as the titanium chains burn
I am forced to watch in distress
baring witness to this adversity.

Tears begin to well
as I sit and muse over
on my abandoned self-hood 
I was blinded by my own distinct image 
in the absence of greater good.

A voice enters the darkness 
"you cunning disobedient queen"
his voice echoed with such sharpness 
my body heated like a diathermy machine.

I soon became drenched in fear 
and filled with contempt 
with my dignity lying near 
I begin to beg God; for the need to repent.

Without consequence 
I fell to my knees 
I inhaled the smell of burnt papyrus 
and the overpowering scent of a degenerative disease
My God please!
