My home is full of the things I have.
At first the freedom to increase them
seemed to be the answer to my problems.
I got everything I wanted and more.
I have been waiting for a peaceful heart.
However, my life is owned by my possessions.
How do I explain my sorrow?
I don’t understand, but I cannot step away.
Every time I turn, I have a new duty.
I thought I would finally be free.
