Awoken,
but not ready
to dispose of the
obligation towards regret
that we cling. Awoken, but
not ready, as thoughts make a
refreshed body weary,
standing not determined but
lullabying the in-between
state, where darkness
bleeds the light. Forgiving
ourselves not, nor others,
for yesterday’s madness,
we carelessly slip into
thoughts
of a caged tomorrow,
for we’ve awoken
but are not ready
for freedom.

  1. An incredible piece! Even while yearning for the sense of freedom, there are so many not ready at all for when it presents itself after being caged for so long! This is deep! Brilliant and very thought provoking!
