A Life Alone – Trapped By Bad Choices

Some are trapped in a physical sense, some by addiction.

Perhaps worse for some, entangled by their own mind.

Some are limited by age or infirmary,

others by injury or decline.

Cause not always known.

Everyone’s trap is different.

Some who fight are damaged.

Some lose and become broken.

Some are trapped in more ways than one.

Whatever the bars are made from, matters not.

The composite doesn’t negate the reality

or the sense of despair.


I write of the damaged and broken, because that is the norm. For each person who overcomes their demons, there are hundreds, if not thousands, who do not.

It is their stories I tell.
