How Pieces of Me Disappeared (Revised)

They set my feet in concrete,

When I wanted to dance,

I lost my patience.


I was born to roam free,

So, they put me in a cage,

Stole my lions roar,

I lost my pride.


They discussed me,

Like an abstract art exhibit,

That was not aesthetically pleasing,

I lost my faith.


They cut out my tongue,

When I wanted to sing,

I lost my voice.


They sent me to sleep with fairy tales,

Of lands, they tell me, didn’t exist,

I lost my happy ending.
