Shuttered and Sheltered

You were too dangerous.
There was no way they were going to let you out
of this place alive
that was clear.
You were far too much of a threat
and they knew it
and they had to keep you
in a box
under lights
beneath the pressure of a sequestered semester
so that you would never rise
to your full potential.

You have been shuttered and sheltered
that is clear
and the game was rigged from the start.
You never had a chance.

This was never gonna end

any way
but with them
beating you
because they
had you in a corner
from night one
when they saw
what you could have done to them
if you’d only been given
the opportunity.
So you never got it.

Doomed from the start,
that’s you.

Is that what you needed to hear?

Does that make it easier
to believe in your quitting days?
