Release Me

Rating: 5.0

You say I can be anything and do anything
Then you turn around and confine my mind
Erase my thoughts
Shatter my dreams and make me blind
It's my fault, though, when I find it hard to succeed?
Somehow I'm not trying my hardest to be what I want to be.
I'm supposed to wait for instructions from you?
I'm supposed to do what you want me to do?
I won't stand for it.

I'll keep thinking that there is no limit.

This is a solid writing but it isn't special in any way. I tried hard to find a phrase or sentence that stood out, and I couldn't find one. I would describe this as plain. The meaning is crystal clear and the substance of the message could be quite profound in ways. But the piece ends rather quietly and the last rhyme was not very good. If a poem ever needed a special ending it was this one. Overall, I would say only fair. GW62
