I Am Not Free

I am not free

but tense and unwavering


I am not heard

but roused and spoken for


I am not seen

but misguided and reassured 


I am not understood 

but manipulated and suppressed


I am not felt 

but raped and ashamed


I am not yours

but degraded and sold


I am not inanimate 

but painted and wound up


I am not free, how could I ever be free 

when you think it’s okay to trap me inside of me
