Fenced In

I’m fenced in by my fears
each and every day
a cloud-filled sky that refuses
to leave,
lingering in everything I do and say

It’s a lonely place to be in,
where I’m always looking out
where no one hears a word I say
no matter how loud I shout

until the words stop coming
and the sun refuses to shine,
if only I can see the light at the end of the tunnel,
the future will all be mine.
