Traps and Cages

If you’re new here, you may want to subscribe to my email alerts. Thanks for visiting!There was a man, once in the wilderness, Afraid he was, of silent traps and cages. Ordinary life, for him was a maze, For him this world, was just a performance on stage. Where the puppets we were, and our…
