Becoming you

Though conversations suck,
The truth you’ve been avoiding:
You’re trapped in the same old patterns,
Of pleasing everyone,
And locked in the prison of external validation.
Strange case! Or maybe common?
We’re all part of the crowd!
Conscious accommodations,
With fears to be disloyal to social expectations.
But in revealing insight,
Your private thoughts speak truth,
Your voice is authentic,
You hear the deeper you.
Wild horses drag your dreams,
You’re smiling, you can fly,
Why asking for permissions, 
When you can reach the sky?
Becoming you it’s hard,
But you have your own story to unfold,
Don’t let anyone tell you how to live your life….
