Did I need permission to be born
Was I not an an act of love
Why then need to chain me down?
Are fetters not that...don't they bind
Was I not like the free breeze
Why then tame to suffocate ?
Am I not from the same yoke as you
Born equal but made unequal by custom
Why then strive to clip my wings?
Am I not other half of this entity we form
Do I not bear an equal burden, share
Why then oppress and belittle?
Born as free I was as all else
for me, myself and my own
Free to live and free to die
