Free

Sometimes I just want to be alone
To be invisible and unknown

In my own little space
No one to chase

No one around
Completely quiet, hearing no sounds

Not dealing with anyone’s attitude
Not having to show anyone gratitude

Just free to be me
No rules and no guarantee

Feeling only my own thoughts and dreams
No one hearing my inner screams

Dealing with self first and foremost
Mind escaping into the unknown, curtains finally closed

Going anywhere my heart desires
Feeding my soul with what it requires

Just completely loving me
Being free to just be me…

It's a beautiful poem just like its author.

I feel sorry for al those people in the world that are not free.

It is a depressing time for us as well. We are living on the edge and the edge keeps getting thinner and thinner. Lets just keep hoping.

Beautiful poem. Being thankful is the foundation to success. Your time will come, but just remember that right this moment, you are still blessed. Again Great post.

JStar said...

I am right there with you Gregorio...I am hanging off the edge holding on with dear life.

So true 25champ :) Be grateful for what you do have, it could be worse...

This is just awesome! Great work

Don said...

i like everything you write.

this particular poem speaks of an attitude/desire that so many of us experience from time to time, but very few have the ability to place the sentiment itself into words.

you are one of the few who does.

*it also reminds me of a line from one of my favorite pop songs where prince says, "...i don't want isolation but the air it makes me cold...."

JStar said...

Yes we do Cook, we all want to escape the drama from time to time and have that inner peace.

Thanks Unbreakable!

YES Don!!! I am the biggest Prince fan EVER!!! I know that line :) But its sooo true...

Dulce said...

Girl- You got a beautiful gift in your choice of words. The way you say things, especially these ones. Good you turn round to look inside and feel yourself and... no one else... So very often we need it and it heals the soul so much...yes it does!

great one.

Don said...

here is a link and site where you can look up pretty much everything from old and new magazines, books, poetry books, everything.

no coincidence how i just finished reading this particular prince book today at work. ha.

i shortened the url. this is the book, but you can search for anything, actually. and the 'browse all..." and 'content' elements are the bomb.

enjoy, prince early years: http://tinyurl.com/y87dykw

JStar said...

Thanks as always Elizabeth :)

THANKS Don!!! I am going to check that link out now!!!

Thanks so much for reading sssdawna...

JStar said...

So true Dulce...We all need a reality check from time to time...I am so glad that you enjoy my expressions...I have written my entire life but never thought I was any good at it...It just helped me through....Now that I am sharing and realizing that I may not be that bad at writing lol...It seems that I am touching people, and that makes sharing my writing all worth the pain I felt behind the experiences...

RoByn LaTice said...

I like everythingyou write as well. I always feel the emotion put into it. I feel like this sometimes..like I need a perfect getaway to get familiar with me! Love it as always!

E's said...

I've felt like that recently. You put it in words beautifully. And it feels major selfish to feel that way. But it's the way I feel sometimes too.

Thanks for sharing.

JStar said...

Yea, we all do E

JStar said...

Thanks sooo much Robyn :) Yea, everything that I write comes directly from the heart...Trying to force myself to write fiction but have been unable to as of yet...
