Built To Be

I am not built to be confined

to walls built by human hands


My heart too big

My dreams too flighty

To be in one place

for too long


I yearn for the wind

to follow

for the stars

to guide

for the current

to sweep me away



The time I have spent conforming

makes me cringe

Can I recollect that sand?


I am built to be free

What I chase - chases me

Built to Be.
