Gilded Cage – Prose

A gilded cage so well supported

One must wonder what the matter is

With all that is purported

When she was younger, she begged for a better life

Than the one she had before

Now that she’s living the way she always desired

Her motivation for it has waned, she has lost her fire

What could possibly be wrong

With a man so young and strong

Directing your movements

Ensuring you stay where you belong

She begged for a better life

Than the one she had before

Now she’s living it, she wonders what for

She realizes her young desires were so wrong

He claims to have given her the world

She’s not so sure that this world is enough

When love is so painfully obscure

For all intents and purpose

She’s no better off than she was

When how the bills would be paid she was unsure

A cage was built so perfectly sublime

Now all you can do is stare about you

Eyes tear blind

Wondering where the time went and with it your fire

What kind of woman can you teach them to be

When out of your own way

You are too scared to creep
