“I am my own!”,
declared the
new-born independent
and stepped outside the looming shadows
of crumbling buildings,
towering high.
he shook off his numbness
and smelled the air
and felt the rain
and saw the delicate light
for the first time in years.
he took off his shoes
threw away his bonds
and started down the sidewalk,
skipping.
