Ostrich egg with black ink by artist and poet Michael Bailey


Deep inside

is a wish,

a notion to break loose

from any restrictions on my Spirit.


Deep inside

is a letter from me

to read to myself

and trust in my madness to be free.


Deep inside

I’ve discovered

I have forgotten my worth

and sold myself for pennies.


How can I break loose

from this hypnotic world

and rise again from within?


How many times

have I pondered this path

only to become distracted?


Deep inside



—Michael Bailey
