not all prisons have bars

Prison, in the conventional sense, is a fairly unusual set of circumstances to find yourself in.

What you do, where you go, how you behave. Everything is decided for you.

Obligations. Lack of control. Letting external influences determine the direction of your life.

But none of those are unique to prison.

A lot of the same characteristics can be found outside of a cell.

The only difference is that we’ve made a choice to create them.

We might not think so, we might not think we have any option.

But we do.

Sometimes it’s just easier to think that we don’t.

We make our own prison.

And we can tear it down.
