Break free

on

Fettered by regulation,

open upChained by tradition

Weighed down by expectation

Bent over in submission

Narrow norms of society

Create needless fear

When to standards of propriety

The heart refuses to adhere

So most of us learn

To suppress our inner voice

While secretly we yearn

For the freedom of choice

To break free from the tether

Of society’s expectations

Break barriers made by others

Follow our aspirations.

So gather the courage

To follow your heart’s vagaries

Turn to your life’s next page

Write your own life’s series.
