Poetry Contest: “Stuck”


I am stuck

I can never be free

I have chains pinning me down

I can only be the person I am

Not the person I want to be

I’ve tried to escape

But I cannot

I’ve tried to forget

But it all comes back

I long to be Orual

But I will never be her

For I am Ungit

And that is who I will always be

I will forever be bound by the ropes of who I am

Never being who I could
