Don’t tie me down!

Don’t tie me down!

Don’t chain my soul!

Let me fly high,

So that I can bring back

Some of the fragrance of the sky to you.

Leave me free to live,

To love you better.

Let me go and reach out for the stars.

Or else I’ll just fall to pieces,

Like a speck of dust with no life.

This picture  by Steve Yi, spoke to me of freedom, unfettered by any expectations. The freedom to be myself, to grow , to learn.

Unfortunately most relationships do not allow that kind of freedom. We always want to chain the person we love; hold them close to us and inevitably we end up losing them.
