She felt rejected, unloved, and unwanted.
She feels like she is being punished for something.
She wants her family back more than living.
The fantasy of her family being together again is her only happiness.
She cries and prays to her God a lot.
For three long years she clung to the fence.
While serving her time her only crime was lonliness.
No one cared enough to parole her from the orphanage.
She still feels the presence of the fence as an adult.
Her hands cling to the fence within.
Just like then no one hears her cries.
There is no key to the gate.
