Waiting on the tenterhooks…

via Daily Prompt: Tenterhooks


Was born free

just like a bird who meant to fly

but for the society before everything i am born a girl

hooked with stereotypes

I sometimes want to flee

but the baggage is too heavy

it not only hooks my soul but my body

i feel as if my body is attached to tenterhooks

but the honest truth is, its all in the mind

to be free i don’t need to wait on tenterhooks

but to trust my wings

once you fly

fly so high

like there are no boundaries, no skies

once you reach the top

you will see

how  small the things are

yet you were scared!
