People’s Approval

People’s Approval

Born and raised in a wired clan
Where what to do lay silently
On people’s table…

Grew up to a larger clan
Where what to say rest boldly
On people’s mouth…

Looking beyond the sea
I saw an age mate who lives
Freely like a bird in the forest.

And while I think of his state
A solitary tear walked down my eye
Many years have I lost living
According to your standard

Now I break free from that shackles
What I do or say requires
Just an approval
And that’s MY APPROVAL not yours.
