“Dear Fellow Human Being,
You are born wild, You do not deserve to be tamed!
You do not deserve this!
All those toxic words you have to listen from people,
All those fears they try to pin on your mind,
All those giggles they aim at your dreams,
All those judgmental stares inspecting your individuality,
All those fingers pointing towards your crude character,
All those shackles that tie your feet to social expectations,
All those cages that do not let your imagination fly free,
Listen deeply, you do not deserve any of it.
My dear fellow human, you do not deserve this hostility.
You are born wild, You do not deserve to be tamed!”
