TO BE IN LOVE, TO BE FREE
DEDICATED TO BRYAN FORD

Dedicated to Bryan Ford

When I used to think of love,
I envisioned a bird in a cage,
Locked away from life,
And slowly dying as a slave.

So, I kept my heart for myself,
And whenever they got too close,
I'd stand straight up and walk away,
From what I feared the most.

To be so in love,
That I'd sacrifice my soul,
And give up all my freedoms,
While locked inside a role.

To forsake all but one,
Seems far too constricting,
And would go against my nature,
And wouldn't be right for me.
