Escape

Why should the people who love me, want to imprison me? I once thought they are afraid of losing me.

I realised, a bit too late, that they are afraid of losing control over me. Control gives them a sense of power, makes them feel superior to me.

Deep down, they know the reality is different.

 spiky energy
 makes me hit the ground running
 pierces consciousness
 am I escaping myself
 my acceptance of bondage

  1. You’ve hit on a very important truth. This is so true in many cases that people who want to restrict us, are not afraid of losing us but afraid of losing control over us. Thanks for joining in with this thought provoking poem.
