"Freedom"

By Christian Taylor

 

The art of freedom

Such a thought, 

And yet so misunderstood. 

We live, 

For what and why we live? 

Society dictates our identity, 

What's right, what's wrong, 

What we can, cannot do. 

Why so dependent on what others say? 

 

Where has originality, 

Become abnormality? 

Society defines 'normal', 

Yet, 'normal' takes so many forms. 

Backgrounds, cultures, gender, sexuality, traditions, 

Normal...does it even exist anymore? 

Why, 

Why are we letting others speak for us?

 

Leave your mark, 

Define by you. 

Mind, spirit, soul, accomplishments, 

You define what's 'normal'. 

Freedom, 

Not just a body experience, 

But mind expereince as well.

Leave your footprints, 

In a path all on its own. 

For dependence is fleeting of life, 

Independence is what brings life.
