I'm moderately happy

It's easy and stable

But I'm owned— and controlled

I work for them— and not for me


The stability has kept me chained in golden handcuffs— for too long

I can't stay here forever

It's not within my values system


And with the leap I make

The unknown—the risk I choose to take

I embrace freedom

I have certainly known that feeling, Rasa. All those years teaching poetry and never writing any of my own!
Thank you. Hope your bid for freedom works out! 😀
