Freedom from my mind

I always wanted to be free.
Free from all the invisible shackles,
That bound me to invisible ideals
That made me just a part of the whole.

I always dreamt of charting my own path,
Path gleaming and glistening with youthful dreams
Dreams that are screaming to be realized
Dreams that have never been dreamt before

But dreams are just dreams
It takes grit & guts to make them real
Where did mine go?
Where did I lose myself?

I lay prisoner within myself now
The web which society weaved for me
The web which I wanted to tear open
I lay trapped within it
I lay trapped within myself

I became the web
I became the enemy I was fighting against
I became the prison I dreaded
I became the mask I wanted to shred

Where lies freedom?
It's nowhere to be seen
Where lie the dreams?
They are nowhere to be found

All I have is society
Living comfortably within my mind
All I have is this mind
Which is no more mine

The enemy has seeped into me
Twisting and turning my identity
It's beyond my recognizance 
I lay hostage to it

Who am I?
Just a part of the whole?
Or a whole in the part?
Am I really free?

I want to be free
Free from the society
It's arbitrariness, it's meaninglessness
I want to be free from my mind
I want freedom from this mind.
