Long have I waited

Trapped in self-made bars of duty and request

But no longer

The shackles have been cast off

The chains melted away, their work now done

I am free

Free to do as I wish

Without consequence, demands that had so constrained me

Free to be me again

To go where I want, at whatever time I wish

Free to make mistakes

Nothing can stop me now

Sitting as I am

Overbrimming with the power of choice

Restless to exercise the freedom so long-lost and missed

I am temporarily at a loss at what to do next

But I am not worried

I’m free, I’ll think of something.
