Behind Locked Doors
by Arlene Johnson
These steel doors shut my life away
Without remorse or consideration
To ever see my loved ones again.
Why oh why can't they see I am a
Human being just like all the others?
I have feelings, thoughts, and opinions
That if they'd only let me, I would express.
Don't they realize they're doing to
Humanity what they're doing to us?
Maybe some day they will.
Maybe some day they'll listen.
