I won't let obstacles stand in my way,
you blocked me so many times.
I will climb whatever is before me,
and be above it all.
I won't follow the routes you give,
your diversions lead me astray.
I'm going to follow the path I set myself,
that will lead me to my goals.
I won't listen to all that you say,
your words bring lies and confusion.
I will make my own mind up
and find the truths for myself.
I won't let you suffocate me,
as you have tried before.
I will breathe fresh air again,
you can no longer restrain me.
I won't play by the rules of your game,
you try to change the odds in your favour.
I will go elsewhere to have my fun,
and find the prize on my own.
I defy the law of your gravity,
you can't bring me down.
I will fly so high and see so far,
now that I am released.
I won't stay here any longer,
where I'm not respected.
I will leave for another place,
and start a better life.
Inspiration was from looking at user pics of phaedrine and read an icon with text on it, added to thoughts about one of Deb's poems.
Editted to add : The last part that was there previously seemed better as a separate paired offering side by side. So I put them in the next post.
