Consciousness Freed

It's unfair to be forbidden to show any emotion, but
it's better being happy than being right, no argument,
no justice sought in a fight as these shackles give me
protection against my mother's terrible, prima-donna
emotional shows and my dad's scary, primitive, mad
emotional outbursts; I prefer a control freak because

You're my bulwark against the past, a wall against the
freedom to express my thoughts & feelings - fearing it

[Hata Bildir]
