SLAVERY BY CHOICE
A prisoner who could be free of decision
I stayed in the prison for many years long
Wishing and hoping that one day I’ll walk free
Although I was his prisoner, it still felt like home
I served my master without any blunder
I nurtured him without putting asunder
He had full control over my mind
I was visited by the worst of his enemies’ courage
Who came to set me free promising to be my slave rather than my master?
A tempting offer I thought
But he would not understand for this was not only a game of choice but a game of the mind
My master made no attempt for me to stay whatsoever but I could not leave him
It was like the prison gate was opened for me to walk out but I slammed it
One day I woke up deciding to let go off this slavery
I took to my heels with courage but it was a funny irony of life for my master fear never chased but it still felt like he was catching up.
