Freedom does not constrict or devalue, it liberates
dignity and respect are its reward
how do you embrace it when choices are predetermined?
when there’s a price to be free are you really?!
stripped of the right to be acknowledged and validated, you are rejected
and cast aside
it is difficult to enjoy free reign shackled to the wall of oppression
what you sought as refuge became a tomb
glimpses of light through a pin hole
surely this couldn’t be fate
