Imagination Confined

Location

Stories are confined within the pages
Even rows, even shelves, always in order  
Bookcases trap adventures in cages
Quiet prison will have no disorder
But reading releases the printed word  
Freedom is found in others' expression  
To trap imagination is absurd
To truly be free from this oppression
We have got to write to create new worlds
Power comes from inventions unfurled
