They're suffocating me. Trapping me in this prison. I want to break free. I need to break free. I can't live like this. I can't breathe like this. They watch my every move. My every step. My every breath.

Am I even my own person? Am I even alive? Is this living? I need to know. Is this life? Are there others like me out there? Aching to get away? Aching to break these chains bounding us to this prison.

I need to get out of sight. I understand now. I am not my own person. I am a puppet of what they want me to be. I am watched like prey. This is not living. This is stepping on egg shells. My every move is accounted for. Its watched. I'm under surveillance by those exact people that tell me I'm free.

They guide me. But pull me back by this leashe. I am not free. I am watched. I am not allowed to breathe freely. I cannot feel free. I cannot be free. They're holding me back.
