WHILE SHE WAS BUSY BEING FREE

For decades she was locked up inside the boundaries of society 

Don’t take risks, choose certainty, that’s what they kept telling her

 

She struggled while she was trying to fit in, but somehow it felt wrong 

She wanted to make her own kind of music, even if nobody else sang along

 

She climbed the highest mountains and ran through the wild forest,
trying to find a way to escape

 

Years later, when she finally reached the seashore and the sun kissed her skin

She came to her senses and knew, there’s no need to escape, when there’s a new live to begin
