Let me out
out of the cage
Let me go
to swing my arms in the open age.

Why take so much time to realize?
Now I am grown
Stepping out of myself
I deserve a life of my own.

I smothers me
as if someone is haunting
I am sorry for being blunt
this might sound a bit daunting.

Binding your daughter you say
"Don't you dare come home late!"
Just when a thought crossed my mind
This day is going to be great!

I want to enjoy sleepovers
I want to go out
Is that your solution for everything
to tell me off and shout?

Imagine the world of possibilities
of life's wonderful treasures
Is it your aim to restrain me
from all the worldly pleasures?

Please stop!
It is doing me so much harm.
Causing no good and adding nothing
to your vicious parental charm

Facing the world bravely
don't forget I've grown
Though you should know what I am not
a property that you own.

You have me down with shackles
there is a world outside my room
it would do some good to both of us
if you realize this some time soon.

If you ever step aside
there is something you will see
I'll always be your daughter
but I really need to be free.

Out of the cage
please let me sway
You gave me my life
don't take it away!

This is truly beautiful Veethee. It's been a few tough weeks for me and a year or so that I'm trying to let go of a painful relationship. I'm not sure you were talking about something similar, but I could see myself in your words and I manage to find some comfort too. Thank you

Lovely poem! I can relate so much, apprehensive amd irrational parents who don't let me use my skills and knowledge to have a brighter future. I'm getting very tired but it consoles me to know that I'm not lonely in this world!

Very well written poem. As a parent it is a reminder to have balance. You want to protect your baby girl but not smother her. Great post

You have an eye for detail as well as a taste with substance. Keep it up Veethee!

I really loved the intro to this. I am grateful my parents allowed me freedom but I know a few friends who grew up with really strict ones. It gets better especially ones you move out! :) Most parents say, my house, my rules.

It musty be one of the hardest parts of parenting, to start trusting your kids enough to let them head out into the big bad world. I don't know if I would have the courage these days to do it.

Ance Antovska said...

Impressive poem!

Britta said...

I think it is very difficult for parents how much freedom to give to their children. Make sure your mother knows she can trust you and that you will make wise and sensible decision and she might be able to give you more freedom!

Once again you have written a piece that is quite beautiful. So much writing skills!
