    Release Me

    Release me from this prison. Release me, lonely bars of hate. Fires that consume me, God please change my fate. They were adrift for many days, asleep on wooden doors. Out of the darkness and fog pouring needing more. Those who have an iron clan where ever they may be. Will...

    Freedom is something all humankind crave.

    For me, its not the physical freedom that I crave, but the mental one. I come from a family where its abnormal to leave and make your own choices. I want to be what I want to be. I want to explore the world. To try different new things. But I'm stuck in the cuffs of normality...

    I Need To Feel Free

    Do you ever just need to get away? To get out of everything, of anything and anyone? Do you ever feel that? I do. I need to be out, feeling the air all around me, feeling the space in which I can be free, feeling the ground under my feet that is not carpet or tiles, that is not...

    From My Ego

    Staying on course is difficult.  I've learned the hardway that it is necessary to just go with the flow.  I can't have a stake in the outcome of life situations.  It will be difficult, but I will try.  I am just looking for some peace.

    Freedom From Society?

    I feel so trapped and held down.

    All I want to do is kick and jump and sprint forever and ever and run away where I have space to run and roam and play in dirt or climb trees- I want to be free! To run or swim or nap or climb whenever and to have nobody holding me captive like an eagle in a cage.

    now where the only way I can achieve freedom is if I leave this world completely. There's no point to hold on to hope anymore.

    for my safety since I was little. I'm still constantly looking over my shoulder because my siblings constantly tries to plan opportunities to abuse me again and I'm just tired if being scared. I want to know what it's like to be normal..to be free.

    Be free, the meaning of this to me.

    .. a cool flowing breeze with the gentle touch of luminous light that glides across the salted ocean. Cool and calm,the wake breaks from the tide, it curls flowing,rumbling towards to rigid edge of banks far off in the distance.

    I never really thought about what the topic of

    Memories Tie Me Down.

    Sometimes I sit by the window and just stare out. Memories flood my mind and overpower reality. I get sucked back into the past and all the **** that went with it. It traps me and drags me into a dark corner where all I can do is pull my knees to my chest and stare at nothing...

    I just need to be away from everyone around me.

    Is it too much to want to be free?

    I want to not feel the pressure to be perfect or do what others want me to do. I want to not feel the judgement of others and be able to finally breathe because for once no one else's opinion of me matters.

    Maybe I don't want to be free anymore.

    I'm so used to captivity now that I wouldn't know what to do with my freedom if I ever to have it back. Maybe it's forgotten me like I've forgotten it. Maybe it's better this way. I just don't know anymore.
