[Poetry] Rebel

Ever since I came out of the womb
I have been in handcuffs
A slave
;to morals
;to standards
;to rules and laws
Beaten and bruised
Forced to conform to modern standards
Ever since I was forcefully released from the womb
I have been blind
Never knowing where to go
Continuously deceived by lies of so-called friends

Ever since I escaped you
I have been educated
No longer anyone's slave
Never believing the words of anyone but myself
Breaking out of comfortable submission
I am a rebel
I have full confidence in my soul
I am complete within myself
I am a rebel
I am the only love of my life
In control of my own happiness and pain

I am a saint to my passion
I am a rebel

Words & Sounds,
P. Nicole
