    It's only my second day back to college from

    the winter break but I can feel it. I can feel that all too familiar thought, "I want to escape!", creeping up on me. Ok, so basically everyone has this feeling in college but most people cope with it and learn to live with it for a few months. I never have coped with it. Ever...

    I yearn to be free. I want to fly,

    away from your grasp. From my own ideals. We tried too hard to understand each other, we expected too much from each other. When all is said and done the only thing to do is to let go. I hope you find as much liberation as I do when you've learned to let go. My heart is torn...

    There are many nights

    when I can't sleep. Most normal working people are asleep at 2 in the morning, but for me, that is the usual time when I put on my jeans, my boots, my gloves, my leather jacket, and my helmet. I put the key in the ignition and I start her up. I don't think about where I'm going...

    And by free I mean, unattached to life's

    I've been looking over my shoulder

    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.

    I grew up fantasising about my 'dream life'

    believing that if I wished hard enough my life will change so suddenly, looking back, for a little girl to think that of her own life, is actually very sad, I don't ever feel sorry for myself, but I feel sorry for that shy little girl I once was, I have disappointed her and have...

    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.

    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.

    I am trapped. Caged in by the stress of reality.

    I long for the freedom of a different life. I look around at everyone else. So carefree and happy. Why can't I have that? Perhaps one day I can be free.

    I want to be free, and be able to do or buy things whenever I want; but I can't especially financially. I have been feeling very restricted when it comes to money; I have two feelings to describe it : 1) I feel like I"m sitting in a chair and strapped tightly and I can't move...

    Everyone has their own prisons. Some are concrete, some are invisible. Everybody thinks i am free. Yet, i am chained by love. So many times, i wanted to just leave and have a life. but no, i cant do that coz i think of my family. I dont want to hurt my parents. I always think of...

    I never really thought about what the topic of

    being "free" meant, it could by all means be emotional, physical, spiritual or a mixture of all. When people say that they want to be free, I picture them trapped inside a hazardous cage curling their body into a small round ball chained with endless chains, crying their hearts...

    So be free. I was told "you are not a victim

    - are you a child? Are you helpless & fully at the mercy of others? Whilst you might think you are, you are not. Use your legs, & that mighty will of yours & walk away. It is your choice. You always have choice. You are therefore free." So be free. Make the choice.
