WEIGHTLESS

WEIGHTLESS More often than not, you clutch tightly, The very things that weigh you down; Beliefs, suppositions, fears and so much doubt, You line the lie of being emancipated, When in actual fact, freedom is alien to you. You define yourself by others' standards, Struggle to fit in, when the simple truth is, Every individual created is a blueprint, A unique creation, with quirts and kinks, That makes you who you really are. You fail to look up, turn to the creator, Ignore the consult of the compendium, To a discovery of one's true self, Instead of the falsity of a likeness, Imitate, forgetting there exist no facsimiles. ME is an opportunity to introduce to the world, Your beliefs and all that makes you distinct, a chance to stand out and not be defined, By standards of what right is, or by anyone else. Defy norms: An existence outside the box Be as light as a feather, Be you Knowing there's only this one life to live To live it full, live it well, live it free, live it good And look back decades from now with nary a regret For you have lived................WEIGHTLESS
