FREEDOM

Confined to the
Shackles of societal norms,
Bound to a life
Etched in stone,
And prevented from
Exercising her basic rights,
She is suppressed
And her voice silenced.
To her,
Freedom is but a stranger.

“It was cruel. Like opening a birdcage to let the bird fly out, whilst all the while it’s tethered by the leg, and freedom is only an illusion.”

― Laini Taylor, Strange the Dreamer
