Held Back

Updated: Jun 30


Caged unwillingly with wings held back

there she sat alone in the prison of thoughts

captivated by the fear of judgment

lost between societal racks


Never again, she decided one day

Never again will she let people control her life

She broke the chains

And she let her heart lead the way


Liberation she seeks

her mind she speaks

after all, she loves her

who are they to judge


She no longer cared about what they thought

Only one goal in her mind

No matter what the cost

Equality, recognization and love she sought

And that day she broke free, free from the chains and rose from the ashes

like a phoenix soaring high,

forgetting all her bloodstains.
