Poem: break/be/free


tear up the instruction manual they left for you &

break free

push away the boxes they built for you &

be free

do your best and get a B

sing loud and proud and in the wrong key

make them earn your laughs and your smiles

stand fast through the tribulations and all the trials

you can be more than what they know so

break free

you can fall and fail but still

be free

because life is not a race, a journey, or a destination

it’s not a trial, a love story, or a conversation

life is a paintbrush, you, and a canvas

life is a world, you, and a longing

life is 7 billion people screaming for meaning

but the only meaning is the meaning you make
