Confined - I

Gagged and bound,
not worthy of water,
six feet underground.

Not in death,
buried in life,
grasping for breath.

Trying hard, still,
hoping for escape,
before the final kill.

Ceasing all motion,
praying for rescue,
complete inaction.

Lying in wait,
air thinning out,
Is this my fate....

“With relish and delight, you continually bite at the bait; you are trapped, you fool - how will you ever escape?” -- Guru Granth Sahib
