Being me -------------------------------------------
Don't you realize
That the option should be mine?
To knowingly take the risk
If I so choose.
But then you've never understood
My need to be
The master of my own fate
The keeper of my own flame
All of my life
I have had to answer to someone
All the while
Railing against the
Chains that bind me
Not to escape
But just to be set loose
So that I may stay here
Of my own free will
And come and go as I please
When did love (love?)
Dominion over me?
If only you knew what it was like
To be me.
A great way to state this, a concept too many people feel, and don't understand how to get out of it all. Sometimes I think I crave affection and that's the reason why I stay, but I just don't know, but I finally left my last relationship, and I wish I could say I am happier, but maybe it takes time, for I miss the affection, but not the violence. Anyways, I love the structure, and eachline, I also like how you questined the llove part, very fitting. great write. takecare much love kaity
you are very much your own person and i someone whom yuo love or claims to love you back is making you feel trapped then they don't love you at all. Get away, it's not that hard, it just takes some time.
good piece of either personal os someones thoughts hard to walk away from loves boundries put on by others All in all we allow this to happen until it gets overwhelming enough to stand back up and say or piece.well written sandman
Im a firm beleiver in controlling your own fate, in a relationship their should definitely be freedom to be who you are. One of the components of love is trust and in order for things to work it must be honored and respected. I think this is a very good and personal poem.
and the soul continues to emerge through your writings, this, just like everything else of yours I've read is awesome. Even in love we must always retain our individuality, after all isn't that what they fell in love with in the first place? hmmmm...nicely done...Bob:)
