We have these

Mental chains

Thrown away keys

Continual strains


We tell ourselves

What we can’t do

Tell ourselves

To subdue


Can't touch the sky

It's too high

All you have to do

Is get by


Don't speak out

Keep quiet

Turn away

Stay out of the fray


Not good enough

Don't ask

Just bluff

Put on the mask


Self imposed prison

You can leave

You are risen

Just believe

Then you begin to achieve


No more no’s

Just go


But I can’t


You just give

The same old chant

From the religion

Of submission

The fiction

To remove

All ambition


Just try

A life without limits

You will see

Change in minutes
