They'd held me down from the beginning
and shoved pills down my throat
year after year, telling me that they knew better,
stealing every spark that was meant to be my own

Now, I'm set free from that institutional hell,
and the strange taste of self-agency and freedom
invigorates me. Witnessing sunup and sundown in person is a wonder
to be beheld for years down the road.
