Nobody is free without breaking open

April is National Poetry Writing Month. Using a series of prompts to write poetries this month. The title of the post is the prompt.

I had a dream,
But didn't want to work for it.
I wanted the fame,
But didn't want to sweat for it.

I had a passion,
But didn't want to strive for it.
I wanted the life,
But didn't want to struggle for it.

I had a love,
But didn't want to love for it.
I wanted to be free,
But didn't want to break for it.
