"No one has the power to make you feel inferior without your permission." -Eleanor Roosevelt

Who? What? When? Where? Why?
Brick, stone, chain, maze.
I ask, you hide.
Vinegar and water; you and I.
You scan the surface as I,
I delve inside.
My eyes wide open, they magnify.
Yours, sadly shut.
You travel blind.
Who? What? When? Where? Why?
I could not tell you
for you leave nothing to find.
You've hidden all these years
that now our paths no longer even
make an attempt.
They do not cross nor do they meet.
For I dance to an orchestra.
and you don't even have a beat.
Who? What? When? Where? Why?
Your story; I tried to read.
You slammed it shut, locked and chained it
Now my friend, I do not even question it.
Who? What? When? Where? Why?
Me, myself, and I
we shall soar, explore, and fly
from now till the sky falls.
the depths of the sea and the corners of the sky
for you are you and I am I
I can not be chained when I
was born to fly.

The author's comments:
This piece is about failed relationships. Giving up on building one at all. Whether it be between friends or parents or anything like that. It's just what happens when you are tired of trying and realize maybe it's just meant to be for each of you to go your own way.
