particular sounds of freedom

I’d like you to write a poem that explicitly incorporates alliteration (the use of repeated consonant sounds) and assonance (the use of repeated vowel sounds).

blurred blinding bliss! to
acknowledge the false accolades and
liberate the list of little lies
that shape your life

berate the behemoth blob
who can’t, or won’t, use the internet

blow away the blight of desire
accept the access you’ve been denying
you are kin, kindred, you came here already
and kept offering me kisses

lineage implies boldness in the meek
i must roar, though i am tiny
i just be nomad, lion, wandering so
i must not be as afraid as i thought
i am still here,
breathing
