oppression


daffodils confined
in a vase
can't dance

nightingales clipped
in gilded cages
go silent

tigers caught
behind steel bars
pace ruts

orcas captured
in stale aquariums
suffer boredom

children chained
to wooden desks
die inside

  1. Absolutely agree.
    I wish I could have gone to a small liberal arts focused high school like my son did. I might have excelled academically instead of ditching class all the time and bullshitting my way through.
    Beautiful picture too.

    we need more creativity and freedom in our schools to enable the children to truly grow into who they are to be...
