CHAINED in a corner
like a beast on a leash,
a girl scared and frightened
like a fish on a beach.
As the dim WHITE light flickers
BLUE eyes shine in fear.
Hopeless and pleading,
filling with tears.
Her RED velvet dress
is spotted with stains.
Each has a memory
filled with struggles and pain.
Like when she fought for her FREEDOM
but failed and got smacked.
Now she's alone and so frightened
as the basement goes BLACK.

The author's comments:
I used a lot of symbolism in this poem. It is what I believe is going to happen to the USA and what is currently happening with some of Obama’s choices and ideas

Great work! Bolding some words added good emphasis. I would love your feedback on my pieces!
