Freedom With Defined Boundaries…Is It Really Freedom?

Posted: July 9, 2018

“Eclectic, interesting…will fill you with hope and resolve!” – Pick up our new short story collection, Women.Mutiny

Sometimes, most of us feel trapped – in our surroundings or in ourselves. We have things we want to say, do and know but we stop ourselves for a million reasons, sometimes known or unknown. But maybe, it’s time we stop limiting ourselves and step out of the boundaries we are stuck in.

Don’t bound my freedom 
Don’t define my boundary

Let me fly high in the limitless sky
The body feels so light floating in the air

Let me dive deep in the vast blue sea
The corals at the bottom are so enchanting

Let me climb to the highest peak of the mountain
The view from the top is breath-taking

Let me venture out in the wild
There is a freshness in its vicinity

Don’t bound my freedom 
Don’t define my boundary

Let me sing as if no one is listening
The lyrics of the song adds peace to my soul

Let me dance to my favourite music
The beats empower my inner core

Let me laugh like a child
The roar of laughter keeps the child in me alive

Let me cry my heart out
The tears relieve me from the grief and pain

Don’t bound my freedom 
Don’t define my boundary

Let me spend a day in solitude
The quietude calms my mind

Let me shout at the top of my voice
The lungs open up to breathe easy

Let me explore the hidden beauty of the world
The treasure in its bosom is mesmerising

Let me live this life to the fullest
The journey is more beautiful than the destination

Don’t bound my freedom 
Don’t define my boundary
