Man is born free and yet is not free
Life has surprises, not always a spree.
We are often chained to thoughts,
Chained to the past,
Chained to traditions,
Chained to society,
Chained to family,
Chained to unfulfilled dreams,
And chained to disillusion.
When we feel the fetters,
We feel suffocated,
Yes, we feel like flying away
To freedom, to light heartedness, to happiness,
To a far, far away natural nest,
To an Elysian field,
To a green grove, or veld…
Unfortunately, imprisoned, with our thoughts dreary
Like being bottled up, so uneasy
Bottled up for long tedious days
Can be life sucking nay!
With nowhere an outlet,
Suicidal thoughts creep in hell-bent.
And being disillusioned and full of confusion,
We can become victims of hallucination.
