The thoughts would came,
easily and with despair
for freedom was a word
that most of the world abused.

Free like a bird in a cage,
that was the overall feeling
these days.
It was like that for most of my life.

My sight was blinded
by all the lies
of how world needs to be,
and how I need to think.

We weren’t taught to question,
but to go with the flow.
No one taught us how to feel
or deal with the world,
but to blindly follow the rules.

Freedom is the state of mind
for everywhere I look
we are still in chains.


Most people choose slavery
over freedom every day
for they want to blame
for this, that, and the other
everyone else.

Freedom is a choice
that comes with a price.
Everything in life is about
the give and take balance.

But the society is teaching us
only to take,
because giving is for the weak.
Parents are teaching their children
that nothing is their fault,
it’s the teachers who are unfair
for giving them bad grades.

Until we start taking responsibility
for everything we say and do
we are slaves to the society
that’s making us ignorant
towards the universe.
