Some of us are not meant to live in cages. Some of us are meant to run wild and free. We are envied by those who wish to possess the same feeling of freedom and joy and gratitude and peace, and they may try to take it from us like leaches sucking the blood out of our skin, but that is not how it works. Because they don’t understand us, they will try to bottle us up, keep us restrained, constricted, unable to roam free. By doing so, they drown us, pulling us under the water like anchors, desperately trying to force us into their ideas of “perfection” rather than allow us to be the thing of beauty that we are. What they fail to see is that they cannot steal the spirit from us… and even if they hold us for a while… we will again be free.
