"To these the past hath its phantoms,
More real than solid earth;
And to these death does not mean decay,
But only another birth"
- Isabella Banks

I gasp and gag,
Stuck in a bag.

Stop! Please!
I want to leave!

I don't belong
I'm not strong,

Why can't I rip
the brown paper bag?

Go away, the knife's
hurting me!

I truly look but,
can't find the key.

I force and choke,
too much smoke,

I can't breathe anymore.

The author's comments:
Society always puts pressure on us, telling us that we can rip through a dumb paper bag. And when you can't, they toss in a knife to "Help".
