I know just what to do

No longer coerced

I am following my lead

My moments expanding

My soul, I have freed

 

Growing, unstunted

Unconsciously held

My wings are unfurling

At once self-propelled

 

I spin in my centre

Am whole through my core

The subterfuge’d sadness

Shown straight through the door

 

Reasons unquantified…

Just not worth the words

Previous programming

So laughable and absurd

 

Freedom… A feeling

All shiny and new

My head is held high

I know just what to do
