inspired path breaking ideas

in great leaders

confinement creates

appreciation for both

freedom and boundaries

in pursuit of freedom

in fulfilling our desires

we disregard boundaries

we forget that

freedom is to be shared

in seeking freedom

we must not encroach.

freedom for one

must be constrained by

others’ right to freedom

path to happiness

is not a joy ride.

shared challenges

create kinship.

within the boundaries of kinship

freedom becomes

purposeful and meaningful

the boundaries to happiness

make happiness attainable

creates insatiable appetite

designers must define

boundaries for desires

we must cultivate mindfulness

and design a space

for kinship and co-existence
