To Be Free

To be free
inside and out
is to call a spade, a spade
regardless of doubt

To not worry anymore
of what people think
of the clothes you wear
or if you do, or don’t, drink

To not be judged
or be the judge of others
For who are your friends
if you’ve no sisters or brothers?

To recognise boundaries
but still craft the pole
that will catapult you forwards
right out of that hole

To say, “Screw you world!”
and “I really don’t care!”
and walk down the street
in just your underwear!

You are only free
when there are no chains
when a spade is a spade
and you’ve kept your brains.
