Darkness enveloped me,
No caresses but that of cold, stale wind,
Devoid of gravity,
A strange solution sucked in through a straw,
How long could that maintain?
My weakness when I fell into that jar,
Made me think I would not long be sustained,
Then to be denied a view of the world,
I'd paid so much to see,
Until it was sure my journey was lost,
Should anyone ask me,
Like I was not,
Between there and my here,
A whole slice of my life paid for the chance,
To live life free from oppression and fear.
