We ran. You said we took the easy way out. You never understood that running was the most courageous thing we’ve ever done. You said you taught us how to live, but you learned how to live from a book, while we learn how to live from our hearts. You call us ‘the free ones’ with contempt and disdain, oblivious to the fact that those are the words that keep us alive. We don’t question your beliefs nearly as much as we question your methods. We don’t question your faith - we question your refusal to let us have our own. Perhaps above all, we question your love, for love with conditions is no love at all.
