I want to be free.

Free of this prison I find myself confined to. Break the bars society has placed on me. Tear down the bricks that trap my heart. Say what I feel, do what I wish, go where my heart desires. Be free of expectation. Alas this is not the world we live in. We live behind the glass of responsibility, or duty, of obligation. The shackles tied to us, ones that are not so easy to break from… Is it even possible? Can we truly be free, or will there always be someone, something holding us captive?
