– F[e]ather –

I miss the protection

From the world

From the negativity

But I wanted freedom

More than anything

 

I used to focus on education

On a future for myself

I had no other choice

You didn’t allow anything else

 

I’ve now got my wings

This much is true

But I haven’t learned to fly properly

I’ve bumped into more walls than just a few

 

Bad connections

Worse decisions

 

If I wasn’t permitted to be out & about

In the world exploring

I wouldn’t be imploring

This self doubt wouldn’t be growing

 

You tried to cage me

From all social activities

But I was eager

I wanted nothing more than to break free

 

But instead we broke apart

I got my freedom after all

 

But at what cost?

It still feels like I’ve lost

 

I wanted this to a certain degree

I just wish it ended differently
