A Daughter’s Struggle

[Image linked to its original source]

***

There’s a path way that I take every day of my waking life
I see wonders of life and the light of my dreams is evident in front of me
The light calls me to take the step forward
One by one
Little by little
But there’s something on my way that is stopping me
I moved my head and my arms
I reached through my side and I was held
Held by glass shields created by the people who raised me
I tried to move my feet but then I realized
My feet were chained
All the while I thought I am moving towards my end
The end – my ambition that I wanted to make impeccable
I was wrong
I was never moving
I am stuck
Just staring through these glass shields
The gifts of life that I always wanted to grasp
I want to break free.
