A crashing interrupts my silence
If I had a choice, I would not listen
But if I did, I would leap the fence
So I suppose it makes sense
To keep me under the eye of a camera lens

For all I can see are these four white walls
And this is all I will see for many, many falls
I slammed my head against these very walls
But yet nobody outside has listened to my calls
So I scream louder, until my voice is echoing down these halls

Now it is spring, and a choice opens up for me
So you’ll finally come to see what I see
And if I die, I could tell you what I wanted to be
But I see no use in telling you my story
But I will say that if you shared my mentality
Things would be different, especially how you see me

The theme of this poem is of somebody being trapped and trying to get out. You can think of this as a prison inmate. Or you can interpret this however you want.
