Feeling cornered...caged...
bound by the chains of maturity.
This isn't the life that I chose,
it's the life I was expected to live.
My fathers life, social and repectable...

Somehow I must break these bonds,
Escape deep into the darkness...
live by emotion and soul...
instead of reason and righteousness.

The time has come to change my course...
To live for me, instead of all others...
Tears will be shed, relationships sheared...
Disappointments abound...
But only then will my happiness
possibly be found...

Great expression of feeling trapped. You can't live happily in a cage...but then again, the grass is not always greener on the other side.
