Without chains

I have lived in places around the country where life seems to be more difficult, where the focus is on mere survival, where love and kindness are lacking. As I witnessed such surroundings that induce strife, anarchy, mental ailments and melancholy, I began contemplating the reasons why the residents of such places do not relocate to a more peace-friendly environment. Then I correlated their existence in a general sense to all living beings (we are all animals) and came to this conclusion: Animals learn to love their cage, and money is an iron chain clamped around the ankles of a bleeding soul. I am thankful to be a wanderer without chains.

    • I would do that without hesitation to keep my freedom, then sit at a forested campsite and carve a new limb from a hunk of wood … with a smile 🙂 Money is necessary, but not as much as most people think, IMO. 🙂 Thanks for this Kelly, it made me chuckle. 🙂
