you want independence – to do your own thing – ignoring convention – wishing for wings – but wings don’t grow on wishes – nor money on trees – choices backfire – leaving you with dis-ease – risking your future – on immediate desire – you want independence – you’re playing with fire – burning your lungs – scarring your skin – in seventeen years – you might wish you’d been – a little more thoughtful – a little less brazen – you want independence – to be the white raven
