Confined Liberation

Navigating through the darkness and light,
I embrace myself for a tedious flight,
Assorted emotions, dismay, and delight,
I hope and pray for a future so bright.

I dare to venture, to places unknown,
Cherishing my voyage, every single milestone,
Aspiring to fly where no soul has flown,
A pathway that I must tread on alone.

Liberated, yet I feel so confined,
With a brave facade, leaving fears behind,
I strive for my goal, that’s been redefined,
With a passionate heart and a peaceful mind.
