I roam around the house, unheard, unseen.
A ghost of all the things I once could have been.
My new family has a new role for me
All I need to qualify is to stop being me.
Roll up my tongue till it makes me gag,
Unwind my tail and give a friendly little wag…
And trust that if I succeed I will be selected
To be a wallflower, forever undetected.
I chose to erect strong walls around me
To keep me safe from this insane reality.
But a cage by another name would still be a prison,
A constricting viewpoint for a narrow vision.
For all my misfortunes I wish I had someone to blame
Who could bear the cross and clear my name.
PROMPT : Trust
