Inhibit your Inhibitions says the modern sage,
Open your heart, follow your dreams,
But control the rage.
If the inhibited heart exists,
There are always lingering feelings,
The possibilities we regret.
But the same regret opens doors,
For Uninhibited our imagination,
To reach distant shores.
Inhibitions are good in way. They open doors for our imagination and give us time. The time can be used to figured out whether being uninhibited was worth it or not. They also shield us from stupid, careless decisions. If the dream is worth it, we can pursue further. In either case, the dream is still ours to cherish.
Earlier I had written an argument (below) against inhibitions. The poem is about inhibitions stopping us from enjoying life.
On this deep blue evening, I sit down and ask my mind,
Why you sometimes tie me down, When words in my heart want to say,
You build walls, barriers, chase those voices in my heart astray.
Under the sheet of this open sky, I sit down and ask my mind,
Why you sometimes hold my hand, When I want to run loose on sand,
When I want only to stand on cliff top, and call the grass to stand tall on land.
With the twinkle of the only star, I sit down and ask my mind,
It knows no fame, no glory, will win me time, Then why does it hold my heart, hold my breath,
Make me lonely, give a time I regret.
Seeking answers for a peaceful night, I sit down and ask my mind,
Am I the only soul that thinks this way,
Or is it the same with all thou creates?
Like a lost soul, I sit down and ask my mind,
Is it saving my heart from the birds of prey,
Or is it building a cage that will darken my day?
To live a new life, I sit down and ask my mind,
I once knew how to fly, I once knew how to fly,
Now I sit with regret only to see myself alive,
To build my own dream, I sit down and ask my mind,
Will I stay forever this way, and will time always stay this way?
Will my words drown in inhibitions, or will they come out and say?
On this dark cloudy day, I sit down and ask my mind…
Seeking answers, I sit down and ask my mind…
Whether they are good or bad is really up to you to choose. In fact they aren’t either good or bad. They sometimes save you either from fun and sometimes from regret.
