This is Me

Little toy trains, no more

My Rolls Royce play time, no more

Gazing at stars and systems. Dreaming, no more

Confined. Obtained. Chained.

Freezing metallic bars burning my skin so tight.

Binding what was my future so bright.

To be free and fly. To be young and and play. Again and again –

What can I do no more? Forevermore!

Doors of destiny sealed shut, all but a faint glimpse of one. Only one.

At the end what is there you say?

A briefcase , suit and hat.

About haringeyunchained

Haringey Unchained is a collective of students aiming to show case the creative talent of Haringey Sixth Form College in Tottenham, London. We think that through the promotion of our creative thoughts, we can educate our community, bringing to the foreground the critical and creative consciousness of a vibrant school in a deprived part of London. We are endeavouring to provide this blog as a platform for our community, giving the space to those whose work otherwise might not be seen or read. Being that the cuffs are off, we are able to express through our photography, art, short fiction and poetry, what’s really on our minds. We are free.
