You keep telling me
Look around and look inside!
Untangle your mental ropes,
tie them up to the objects around you!
A nightingale, a pair of slippers, a coffee mug
Hold on to them!
Tighten your grip until your knuckles turn white
Breadcrumbs marking your life’s path.
Ancient paintings on your cave walls telling a story.
Defining the boundary lines of your existence.
A meaningful cage full of resonant memories.
Suffocating… Let me out!
Grant me the freedom of reinvention and let me start afresh!
