Break Out!

Break Out!

by Elizabeth Challinor

That delicious feeling

Of freedom


What you know

You should not do

For a bunch

Of reasonable reasons

All the more


To be guilty of treason

To challenge

Deeply grooved and familiar pathways of the brain

And if you can't actually allow yourself

To do it

At least unchain

Your imagination

And break out

Into a liberating grin!
