I feel restricted
Why can't I leave?

I can but I'm scared.

I'm completely free
But completely imprisoned
By myself,
By social conventions.

It would not be proper to leave
Why? Because that's just how it is.
Why? Because we chose structure, rules and power.

Life shouldn't be this way.
But it is.
