Counting chains

We sit in darkened rooms, empty voids
Counting the chains wrapped round our bodies
The curtain on the window is nailed to the wall
Blocking the world and light from within
We never lift up our eyes from the ground
To see life swiftly passing us by
But continue to sit in the dark and play with our chains
Never wondering what may lie beyond
