March Challenge #11 – Fruit

From Cloaked Monk’s March Challenge:

March 11th is “Johnny Appleseed Day.” John Chapman, known as Johnny Appleseed, was responsible for introducing apple trees to many regions of the western frontier. Reflect on fruit.

March Challenge #10 – Slavery

From Cloaked Monk’s March Challenge:

Today is “Harriet Tubman Day.” Tubman was abolitionist. She helped many slaves escape to freedom on the Underground Railroad. Reflect on slavery, in whatever form.

a simple quatrain:

born into a cage, only to die in a cage,
never feeling the grass, never seeing the sun,
hopeless in your fear, powerless in your rage,
purpose ended once the experiment is done.
