Free…

Most people are captive in their own lives: chained to their burdens like Marley was in A Christmas Carol. We often see animals in cages and think how terrible it would be to not move about freely, but we forget that freedom is not just about moving. Entrapment still occurs within the soul.

You are the only one carrying the burden that drags behind you, pulling you down. So many things, even small things, can cause us to feel trapped. Our cage may not be of bars and steel, but it still consumes our energy and happiness like a leech with blood.

Freedom or Captivity?

Freedom is different for every person. No one can tell you how to feel free. It should be natural, like an instinct. Something that you crave. We all crave to feel free.

So, are you free?

Stuck.

That is what I feel.
That is what I feel when I am here
                                                  there
Tearing at the flesh
                        fighting for freedom
            neanderthal
                                     monkey
brains melt, cook
                        d
                          o
                             w
                                n
               into a buttery
bowl of grits…
 
Escaping into the darkness
              into the abyss
             into the corner of creativity
a desk.
           it sits there, homely,
             a pallid creature creates
                       mindless scribbles
                                  as crumbled papers make mountain ranges.
