Chain Gang


 

Step inside


our little contradiction


Wrap you arms around


the paradox of us all

A core inconsistency


of our flawed humanity


We yearn to be free

showcase our individuality

and yet


we’re born to conform

First we get assigned to a family


wrapped inside a community


Play dates


Class mates


Social commitments 


Chained to a tribe


Slipped into our slots


Work… family… friends…


Juggle many roles


Somewhere along the way


Our true identity gets suppressed


The years get compressed


Only in death


do we achieve


the freedom


denied by life
