    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 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...

    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...

    Prisoner Or Freak In A Freak Show?

    I wake up In a cell. Am I in prison? But why? A female guard Stands there With a look Of hatred And sorrow. I look down At my wrists, Shackles With a chain That connects to the earth. I look up, I see people Laughing... At me. The owner laughs, Makes jokes, And trying to poke...

    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...

    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...

    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...
