Are we ever?

Are we ever?

A Poem by Zipho_D
"

When will I get my freedom?

"

Are we ever?

All this is tiring. At this point I don’t

Feel young. I haven’t got a clue what

Young is supposed to mean. I feel the opposite

Of young. I’m old, bitter and grumpy.

I’ve been working all of my days. Working for

Something I’ll supposedly reach at my youth.

 

What is this I’m searching for?

Tell me when we are going to be okay.

When are we going to be free? When will

We feel young? Are we ever going to be

Young and free like they promised?

 

I don’t feel free. I’m caged like a dog.

Freed only to be on a leash. I’m longing for

Freedom like I’ve been slaved for centuries.

As if I haven’t seen the sun all my years.

Give me the freedom. Give me what’s mine.

i quite like this Zipho...
in my twenties i felt pretty well spent physically and emotionally...
beaten down...still in youth but felt decrepit with emotional age.
I actually feel much like that dylan song now..."i was so much older then, i'm younger than that now."

This has the air of dissapointment and frustration and confusion watered down with anger that someone feeling this might experience. I guess everyone defines freedom in differing constructs but we all long to feel it.
