I Belong To No One


The feeling you have
just before you are about to unshackle all the ties
start planning for life, devoid of lies
where you have time to spend with yourself
no more dressing up
or stressing out
no more deadlines
to waste your time
Then its year long
Summer times.

Yes! I am earning it all
for I am breaking these walls
that have confined me
and tried to define me
Back to where I am from,
The Sun, the Seas and Earth
that welcomes life giving rainstorms

Soon i will be a nobody again
in the process will have
so much more to gain

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust

And pays us but with earth and dust;
