Initiated, when there’s a choice to truly take it
In order to be liberated, gain true identity
When there’s a low road, a higher path is taken solo
It doesn’t matter even how slow, true living is free
No matter the forces I see, the invisible right before me
Keep moving and gliding swiftly, liberated, it’s time to be free
All genuine none to conceal, just chasing the joy that I feel
Authentic with goodness is real, liberated, truly liberated
Unrelenting, a core desire with no ending
Distractions don’t require tending, so undeservedly
Uncomplicated, could be as simple as I make it
A dream pursued, even belated, there’s possibility
Footsteps, yes I gotta find my own quest
The only way to give my true best, originate and shine
To awaken, to be myself yet unmistaken
All the others they are taken, the opportunity is mine

"Liberated" is a song that expresses the personal freedom of having choices in life and the liberation of decision. Within the first verse the individual recognises that their personal quest for a greater sense of freedom may begin alone, yet with the recognition that there will be greater rewards along the way. Comparatively, the individual has come to appreciate the concept of being liberated in comparison to their former experiences. For having experienced degrees of restrictions, confinement and authoritarian limitations whether physically, emotionally, they have come to recognise the difference.
The chorus is connected to the stage of definite decision making, in which the individual has made the choice to no longer allow the past to have reign over her life and future. As the captain of her own soul, she has come to appreciate that she can begin to create her own future and take responsibility for her choices in life.
Within the second verse there is acknowledgment of previous distractions that have had their own ramifications. The emphasis from therein is to no longer allow further distractions to hinder her journey or progress. With the pursuit of any dream one can at times go about their quest with added complications, whereby simplicity would be a beneficial choice. She chooses now to sift out any elements in her life that no longer serve her or help her accomplish her life’s purpose.
