Freedom becomes a gift when in love,
But when the world watches over,
You are chained.
Wonderful becomes an everyday word in love,
But when the words look at you,
You are detained.
More and more you become YOU in love,
But when the boundaries identify you,
You are unnamed.
Smile becomes a language in love,
But when the tears frown at you,
You are blamed.
Deeper you go within when in love,
But when the world pushes so hard,
You are contained.
Why do chains hurt,
When they do not touch your body,
Why the world cares,
But never loves to accept.
When chains are clamped to the heart,
Why do feet bleed?
When love is bound to the soul,
How can chains be freed!?
