When comes the manumission 
of an imprisoned tear? 
Struggling to stay in position 
since the world created fear. 
We would rather be imprisoned 
or receive the electric chair 
than bare a distorted vision 
in the glasses people wear.
Making a torturous decision
to suffocate from a lack of air
all to avoid an opinion
when we shouldn’t even care.
But life is at a beginning
when we are willing to share
the words of an imprisoned tear.
