Shackled {poem}

I am shackled by my judgments; My beliefs that are running show; My opinions that I think are truths Are disabling me to grow. I am chained down by my beliefs Of who I think I’ve always been. Not realizing that I have a choice To break mind shackles for the win. Rather I’m constantly upholding What I ‘should’ or ‘shouldn’t’ do. Instead of following my inner compass To reinvent myself brand new. I am restrained even more so By who I believe I’m not. Self-reminded of what I can’t do Based on all the beliefs I’ve bought. Everyday I clip my wings To nicely fit into the mold Of who I think I need to be And it’s getting kind of old. Some of these beliefs are obvious Others are hidden in the depths. They can only come to the surface By embarking on a self-exploratory quest. I can feel it’s time to break out Of the shackles that have compiled… By waking up to self-examine Beliefs that have been filed. You’re standing at a crossroads With a chance to make a choice. To unravel all that is not you By listening to your inner voice. It’s time to unlock the shackles That have been keeping you all confined. By making the decision to unravel Anything that is no longer aligned.
