I don't understand love locks
Do people really think love is like
a piece of jewellery
that you can just lock it up
so it will never change or be stolen?
So stagnant? So mundane?
Are we human beings so limited that
we have to lock each other up
in order to protect the so-called love?
Are we so limited that we can only
give love to one person for
our entire life?
Are we so limited that we have to lock
to put a cage over each other
How can our hearts be opened up
if they are all locked?
How can we give love if
they are locked?
How can true love ever be locked?
Are birds happier in a cage or
flying freely in the sky?
Are fish happier in a tiny fish pond
or swimming in the sea?
Are humans happier being locked up
or granting freedom?
Freedom to love
who we truly are?
