Favorite Quote:
we are all born with a divine fire in us. our effort should be to give wings to this fire.

Tears tears and more tears

they roll down and flow before

I wipe them clean of my face

crying is a dangerous game

at least where I am at

everywhere else I am free to cry

but never here in front of those who veiw it a weakness

as they say you are to have

no weakness

no pain

just brute strength

I am not meant to be 

that way

I want to be free

break these crude chains

I have loathed to see

and yet have worn for so long

I pray to God

Lord save me

yet only a soft wind responds

soon child soon

you will be safe and loved

when will that day come

I wonder staring at my prison

the walls are nearly ready 

to start crumbling

to dust

and I will be free

I see a light

warmth fills me

my tears are coming

but something is lurking

inside me

these are not sad tears 


they are joyful

and as I realize I am

free the walls 

crumble around me 

my chains shatter

and a figure embraces me

he says you are free

and loved like always

I am finally happy

I can be free

goodbye to the sorrows of old

and hello to the joys of now

it is time

I am finally free

and I rejoice and celebrate through

the night carefree

This is me

the true me

free at last for eternity
