Wanting to be Free

Caught, I am, when obligated to what's been taught.
Wanting to be free, the voice of approval haunts,
All say to move forward, yet propriety pulls.
Heart says yes but the mind ties reasons into knots,
I don't feel free when my choices are constant duels.
It would be possible if I ignore the taunts,
I'm meant to fit as long as my self is caught.

I write this reflecting on the hard work it takes to let go of what we've been taught to find who we are meant to be. It can feel like a constant struggle until our practice has set in.
