    To Be Free to Be Me

    I do wish I could live my life differently. Differently enough to be myself. Without hesitation. Without hiding. Without being ridiculed or worse. Responsibility is primary for me right now, so my life is on hold. There is more to life, my life any way. One day the wish will...
