Caging Oneself

'Caging Oneself' by Seh Hui

Seh Hui Leong


Bolting up
It’s easy to lock myself in
Shielded away from the outside world

Feeling secure
Despite knowing it’s only my illusion
In a world that doesn’t seem to care

It’s perfectly fine
Staying inside, wallowing in a sea of gray
For a while — for a cloud to slowly pass by

The existence of the bolting lock
And a world that’s colored by myself

Time to get out… Unlock
