“The apple doesn't fall far from the tree." I guess that means we're just products of whoever made us and we don't have much control. The thing is, when people use that phrase, they ignore the most critical part: the falling. Within the logic of that saying, the apple falls every single time. Not falling isn't an option. So, if the apple has to fall, the most important question in my mind is what happens to it upon hitting the ground? Does it touch down with barely a scratch? Or does it smash on impact? Two vastly different fates. When you think about it, who cares about its proximity to the tree or what type of tree spawned it? What really makes all the difference, then, is how we land.”
― Val Emmich, Dear Evan Hansen

Welcome to my world

Meet the unchained

We are the ones 

With free new names

Fighting for freedom

Fighting for more

But what is freedom

an open door

A imaginary world

Not at all

Freedom is a new book

Thats open to all

So in my world

Where we are unchained

I give you

The freedom to choose your name.
