it is not
my first
language
you see,

but I still
choose
to write
in it,

for how else
could I have had
this wonderful
chance,

to discuss
the vagaries
of life
with you,

the risks
involved
in interpretation
abound,

but I’d rather
take them
with a
pich of salt,

than miss out
on this
linguistic
opportunity,

in the hope
of getting
to know
you too.

I
release you
today
from this
existing self,

the beliefs
you hold
that bind you
to this identity,

the conditioning
ingrained
by each
borrowed
brick laid,

the expectations
you hold
from being
what you
were,

and those
that remain
unfulfilled
from those
around,

from the image
you perceived
to be
a reflection
of you,

and the
mirror
which only
sees
your age,

from the physical roots
that limit
the growth
of that
which is unbound,

and from your own
perceptions
that confine
your
visions,

from the narrow
definitions
that slot
the differences
between success and failure,

and the thoughts
that hold you back
from reaching
for the open
skies,

I
release you
today
in all the ways
I can,

Its time now
to rediscover life
through the
unfiltered lenses
of your soul.

mistaken identities
lead you to believe,
the wrong one
that walked by,
was the right one for you,

free the mindset
from thoughts,
that make the eyes follow,
the opposite directioned
footsteps,

the ones that couldn’t see you
for what you hold within,
could never have been the ones,
that were ever meant
to hold you.

love
had
become
a word
as frivolous
as they
could have
turned it to be,

he
took
one final
look at the
revered dictionary
before swinging his arm
letting it fly out of the window,

it
was time
to write
a new one
even if it meant
rewriting it for
that one little word
in all the different colours
that it was always meant to be.
