Assaf1981 Posted December 29, 2022 Share Posted December 29, 2022 Behold this young woman Confined to A small, chilly basement Hidden from view, Appearing all But helpless. Yet behold her face, Not a trace of fear, Despite her predicament, regarding neither The basement’s cold air That torments Her young hospital gown-clad body Nor the cool ground Beneath her bare feet, That forces her Upon her tiptoes, Nor the tight bracelets binding her To the pipe Above her head, That tighten further Into her wrist Each time She jiggles and pulls At the chain! Yet again, She jiggles the chain Binding the two bracelets Together, Tugging at the chain With renewed vigour. And once Again, It’s all in vain. Yet, she submits not: Not to fear, Not to despair, And not to worry. Oh, no no; Only a renewed resolve A renewed determination To escape from her predicament And from whatever captors Are holding her Against her will! How would she escape? Behold her left arm, Reaching behind her! For what, You may ask? I’m not sure, Perhaps a key Hidden in her gown? How very clever! Yet she must be quick, She must be careful, For whatever captors Are holding her Will surely return! That, Dear Reader, Is the moral Behind this painting, The determination to Escape from any Dangerous predicament And the determination To press on Despite seemingly Impossible odds. Does she escape? I am not At liberty To divulge Such info At present. Now you know, O dear Reader, the story Behind this painting, As depicted by One Who shared Her same predicament!
