    I'm sure some genius out there is still saying

    real freedom is in our mind.. but with all those money and technology things outside I don't feel that free. Well.. I still am a student and this year I will end my university. I have to say I learned how to be free but I am depending on material things I cannot control...

    You drown in your own blood,

    bathing in your dead body, controlled by a dead mans life. You're a skeleton, wandering through your black life, before you die, leaving a negligible memory.

    They Say I Live In the Land of the Free.

    But how can any of this be free, when everywhere I could go, everything still has a fee.   I don't feel the real kind of freedom I long for in this world. It seems like all there really is is spending a large chunk of life "learning," Then the rest of it is...

    Free From Confines of Marriage

    Why, why, why do some people believe that marriage gives them title of ownership over their spouse?  Don't these people realize that tying a ball and chain to another is akin to slavery?  It's little wonder why those of us who find ourselves in these types of marriages...

    I've Just Begun to Believe, Maybe I Can Be.

    I've felt trapped, by everything, throughout my whole life so far.  Every circumstance, criticism, judgement, relationship, job, and even the beliefs I was 'brought up' with - all were nothing to me, but suffication. Being me, was never an option.  I had so many wings...

    Saturn Here We Come

    There's so much more to this statement than words can even begin to euphemise. The feeling of being free, to me, would signify a full,pure presence..(of course I'm reverting back to a time in my wind when I was present and crystal clear...to better reiterate the simile..or...

    I Wish I Could Feel Free.

    I've never really been "free". I grew up with controlling parents and I've been forced to go to a private school since I was little. It's so controlled there, it makes me sick. But my school has made me sick, literally, quite often. I'm so stressed out all the time and I don't...

    What Does Free Really Mean?

    In my mind, I guess total freedom would be complete happiness.  Free from worries.  Free from depression.  Free from debt.  Free from guilt.  Free from obligations.  Free to be what I wanted.  Free to love unconditionally & accept it in...

    Never give up on those you love.

    For when you feel lonely, and depressed, they're who you need most. They're the only light shining in your life.

    To accept the consequence of my actions is to love and respect life and myself and others. No such a thing as punishment,self inflicted or not. Just peace.
