THE VILLAGE STORY BOOK
THE PRISONER by Carol Brady
Is it real? Or is it in my head?
Or maybe it’s all just a dream instead?
Or a nightmare or illusion of some kind
But I still have The Village on my mind
The way of life I know was
put on hold
Because ‘They’ thought I could be bought and sold
I could be somewhat crazy or insane
But still, The Village is inside my brain
Do I haunt myself? Am I alive?
Although their tortures and their cruelty I survived
Just when I thought it safe to go back home
I lie awake remembering the Green Dome
I need to finish this; to
end it all
To make the world around me Free for All
But I know I’m still a prisoner; I’m not blind!
I’ll always have The Village in my mind
