Free to be me

I wanna be Free to be Me
Not what you want or expect me to be
I’m gonna come out of my shell
Be alive and well
Break out of my skull not be dull
I wanna soar and glide like a gull
high in the sky feel alive

I should smile and be kind
Not closed in behind a grin
When there’s no shades of grey
And everything’s grim
Not just a bad day

If I don’t pass their test
They’ll think I’m a pest
Pass judgment on me
I’ll pass judgments on them
It’s their fault
I’m condemmed

But it’s my fault too
I listened
To all the wrong things
Made bad decisions
Now I’m in prison
But I’m gonna get free
To be nice
Sociable Me
Get comfort in this skin
I’m gonna win

You are you
I am me
Just let it be.

New Beginning

I danced to your tune as you piped flutey whispers. Deep into a barren winter, you led me. A leaf I became: curling, crisping, dying. Your words had me cr...

Still Winter

The birds were home at long last, each tweeting their own beautiful melody. The greenery continued to unfurl, spring birthing outwards. Here was I, still ...
