    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    I'm not free with everyone.

    I can't seem to bring myself to express things I really think and feel. There will always be the wall, that barrier, closed doors that the most random people I encounter seem to already have a key to get through. I don't know their secret or what they know that I missed, but it...

    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...
