Poem: Break Free

Photo by Mohamed Nohassi on Unsplash

He feels so distant,

so closed off,

so unsure,

so frightened,

he wants to be liked

but not at all costs

but it feels like that’s the only way to be liked,

fear eats him up,

he wants to be loved

but that requires putting himself out there,

that’s terrifying for him,

how does he get over that mental block?

Free the inner,

break through to the outer,


be free

in a world that isn’t free.
