I abdicated my freedom

In lieu of security

I survived under another’s

Rules turning over authority

To a third party

Because it seemed easier

But I finally discovered

That is not living

I finally broke free

Now on the other

Side of the wall

The sun burns brighter

The moon glows quieter

And my imagination can

Finally rest no longer

Needed to simply survive

Isn’t simple life grand


It’s interesting just how

Little you get used

To expecting when others

Don’t give I felt

Like an island exporting

All my natural resources

Take this take that

I still have plenty

The funny thing about

Others though is that

When my little island

Ran out of me

They too ran out

Found a different island

From which to import

And I well I

Renewed myself to glory
