I refuse to be hindered
My eyes they stay wide

As I listen in silence

To the voice in my mind

The whispers are forceful

The feelings intense

I won’t get away

Many failed attempts

As I’m drug back to darkness

My eyes they stay wide

I will never be hindered

But in time I will die                                                           ~ Vanessa Montes, Author

    This poem to me, reads as if a woman is trapped in a terrible relationship she can not escape from. It could be verbal, mental, or physical abuse. She somehow has to find the strength to stand up for her life and take ownership of it.
