My Freedom & Yours

Quote of the day:

Everything that is really great and inspiring is created by the individual who can labor in freedom.
-Albert Einstein

Feeling like i need to get up and do something..
Make a change or something...

In a room
locked in from the outside
an enormous wall separates
Me from freedom...

You see i've been forced made to believe
All my life that nothing was ever possible...

Inside this prison of mine.
written words on the walls..
from prisoners there before me...

i was told no one ever remained escaped..
i could see the writings on the wall.

I planned my escape in a painstaking manner
i just had to be free you see...

The world awaited me with open arms..
i wasn't ready to disappoint her.

So one night i reviewed my secret plan.
i gathered my tools and set to work...
hour after hour i laboured
with only one thought in mind.
