Slaves to the mind, trapped back in time
Freedom seems to be confused with nickels and dimes
Success nothing more than a borrowed image
Satiated by perverted perspectives
Chained to rusty bars of mental prisons
Fighting for the chance to realize destiny
While clothed in costumes of hijacked dreams
Stolen language, borrowed frames
Walking in circles waiting for answers
Convinced that conquering the world will reveal it
Yet there’s still no dirt on the bottom of your shoe
And the real you still stands hidden inside of you
If you ever stopped to take an inventory of your thoughts, frustrations, goals, and priorities, you will often find that they have become wildly webbed with borrowed pieces of other people’s goals, fears, and thoughts. Sometimes those borrowed pieces are beneficial and help us push toward finding our true self. Other times, however, those borrowed pieces weigh us down in knotted webs that seem to make finding our true self more stressful than just living out other people’s dreams and expectations for us.
However, it is necessary to determine how entangled you are with the images, goals, fears, and expectations of others. On that journey of disentanglement, you will find happiness, freedom, and purpose in life. Until you make the first steps to untangle yourself, you will always have the weight of the skeleton of the real you pulling you under water. It may not seem like it at first, but once you bring that skeleton to life — by accepting and embodying who you were created to be– you will feel lighter, happier, and less like you are constantly drowning in a world that seems to enjoy pushing you under water.
