Why Can’t I Be Free?

0

It feels like I’m stuck.

It feels like I’m in a cage.

It feels like I’m not human.

It feels like I’m being programmed.

It feels like I’m not me.

 

Why do I feel like this?

Why can’t I be free?

 

Why am I equip to my phone?

Why am I equip to cosmetics?

Why am I equip to having the fancy cars?

Why am I equip to being fake?

Why am I equip to being something that I’m not?

 

How am I a part of this deranged world?

Why can’t I be free?

 

How come it’s scary to be a leader?

How come it’s scary to be yourself?

How come it’s scary to be away from society?

How come it’s scary to embrace your worth?

How come it’s scary to be free?

 

This society has corrupted our minds so badly that we’re trapped.

So please answer my question, why can’t I be free?
