BREAK FREE

We are born free,

Yet find ourselves,

Fastened with shackles.

 

Attachments confine us,

Inflict pain at times,

A search for solace sometimes.

 

We yearn to break free,

Escape and flee,

To somewhere unknown.

 

But can we live alone,

Or can we stay long,

In a place unknown?

 

Responsibilities summon us,

Relationships beckon us,

To bring us back to reality.
