released

Written by: norah natty maturure

I need to be released
I need to be released

Released 

From this captive cage
That hinders my spiritual social, and academic progress
Frustration of my efforts and dreams
Is the constant pattern of my life.

I need to be released 
I need to be released

Released

From all hindrances
To spread my wings and fly away
To taste freedom and folly

But
I promise you
Once released
I will not return
For I never truly belonged to you
