Can’t Be Moved

What can I do, I cannot move.
Life feels so stagnant like nothing’s moving.
Like I’m stuck at the same place since I don’t know when.
What can I do I cannot move.

Even if I try hard to lift my arms and legs,
they come back to the same place because of a magnet.
My heart keeps shouting from within me, I’m still here.
It says I need to let go,
but the cage of my body is not letting me move.

My heart says let’s go, just you and me.
Somewhere quite yet with a lot of sound.
Somewhere new, somewhere with love around.
To start over and then move on to another.
The heart is naive, it doesn’t understand.
It wishes for things that are out of my hand.
It cries from within me but I don’t listen.
I just close the window of the cage and look away.
What can I do I cannot move.
