Moral Chains

Poetry By: footprints

our thoughts and actions are so restricted by social norms and rules.

What is it that's holding me back

My wings are wide but of no use

Don't know why I am so slack

Cannot fly cannot even choose

I guess it's those chains

Chains of reason, knots of society,

It burns my skin and my heart pains

I have lifeless limbs of morality.

My thoughts cold with lack of motion

Every breath in struggled manner

I lie on the shore drained of emotion

Trembling………. like a fish out of water.
