Every thing's a cage.
Every name, every label,
All of it,
And it's all been holding us down.
Shame, shame,
I don't wanna live life in a cage.
I wanna fly free,
But not in an Emily Sky.
I just want a sky.


The author's comments:
As you can tell, I really hate how people will often try to define each other with a few words. You can't capture who a person is in one meager label, it's just not possible. All it ever does is hold people back and make them think they dress the wrong way, or they're interested in the wrong kind of thing, or they like the wrong kind of people.

Thank you! To be honest, it just kinda popped in my head one day so instead of doing my homework I literally wrote it in the TI submission box. I'm so glad it worked out.
