Empty streets,

Empty hearts,

Empty wallets,

Empty minds—

Waiting for someone

To save you?

Start moving.

Fill the holes (in yourself)

Let the rest

Remain empty.


Bound by golden cuffs

Chained in place

A dragon waiting

For the princess

With the key to freedom.

Bound by duties

Chained by expectations

Laid by others (parents, friends)

Waiting for the birthday

Announcing adulthood.
