My life is mine


My life is mine
i wont people to stop to decide it for me
i am a woman
not a child
i was raised right
im not out running wild
but yet people still
in my books
in my life
telling me where i need to be
where i need to go
wwhat about what i want and need
to shoker is that
these lies people feed
i dont need lies
i dont need sombody trying to
tell me where i need to be

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

Only in sleep I see their faces,
Children I played with when I was a child,
Louise comes back with her brown hair braided,
Annie with ringlets warm and wild.
