Glass Cage 
by Catherine Brown
If silence is golden
Then why do I feel
Like a nightingale 
In a glass cage 
Whom no one can hear?
Children laughing
Telling stories
Words the key to a friend
And the teacher?
Without words
Not an ear can she lend.
Looking out from inside
My only voice the tears that I cry
So envious...
they belong to this land
When will I?
