Born To Be Free

A free spirit really knows no bounds
Swimming in the fast life
And almost drowned
But instead of sitting down
I'd become more careless than ever
I never think about the consequences
Dangerous endeavors
I'm really going through a stage
Will I change like the weather?
On a self destructive pathway to heaven
Leaven with anger
I hate to marinate in pain
I don't want to cause problems
I refuse to live in vain
And the best part about it is no one has a right to judge
Know that I'm in control although it doesn't show as much
I would hold a grudge if you told me how to live
I really wouldn't budge
I hold opinions like a sieve holds sand
And if a person wants control
They can kill those plans
I don't want to live like another man
I'd rather be me until I die and kick the can
Maybe I'll change but who's to say I'm living wrong?
I was born to be free
To me I'm just where I be belong

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
