A prisoner of my body and mind

My body rebels

It betrays me on a daily basis

I am a prisoner

In prison in my own body

I am stuck

In the past

My body acting out of fear

In response to traumatic things

That happened to it

When I was younger.

I am a prisoner of my body and my mind too

No sound escapes

No words come out

When I try to move

I am rooted to the spot

I try again

This time my body cooperates

But my mind does not.

Its awful to be a prisoner

Of your own mind

Being in prison for real

Would be far better

Than being a prisoner

Of your own body and mind.
