Freedom


I will hurl expectation to the oceans of burden you drown beneath 

I will untie my hands from the duty you enslave your heart to 

I will dance upon graves of the buried obligation you die below

I will howl truths upon the mountains you lack courage to tread 

I will sprint breathless toward the deliverance you turn away from 

I will tear apart the walls of the prison you call protection 

I will revel in the abundance of life you deny yourself 

The life you denied me

For I understand now it was not 

My freedom you so feared

But your own.
