I watch you glitter and dance.
The sun illuminates your busy streets.
I am behind these dirty windows watching you.
You tease me everyday.
You send in little rivers of light to remind me about you.
You invite me to come and play with the glimmers of hope you send me everyday.
I am excited by your colourfulness every time I pass by that window.
But I am pulled away.
Surrounded by darkness in here.
I know there is a better home out there for me.
But my heart is heavy in here.
My spirit and fire are fading.
The walls are closing in.
They don’t understand me in here.
I am invisible.
But yet I yearn to be seen and understood.
Please wait for me.
