Freedom In Captivity

Behind The Wire FenceCreative Commons License José Manuel Ríos Valiente via Compfight



Borders of expectations.

Behavior controlled to abide by comfort.

Everyone freely giving their opinion

An unsolicited meal of shoulds

With heaping tablespoons of guilt.

Unasked, no thanks, I’ve already eaten.

I’m allergic to the rules of your worldview.

I’m tired of living in captivity.

A domesticated version of who I am.

Who I was born to be

Faults, weird, genius and all.


[Poem #141]
