xI’m a believer that we are all born free. No one decides or governs our lives. Our parents exist to bring us to the world. It is their duties to guide and nurture us, but it doesn’t mean they can take charge with our lives. We are always in control with this long travel. There are people who become close to us and some may capture our hearts. But it doesn’t mean they can enslave us or we become their belongings. We are not like pets with name tags that anyone can buy and own any time. We are human beings with free wills and we decide with how our destination goes. Of course, no one wants to be jailed and monitored with ones every move. Freedom has no restrictions and we are nobody’s possessions. We love, obey and respect still no one owns every atoms that completed us. So, cut the chain or choose to break free… we are young there are so much to discover, enjoy and explore in our lives. Don’t decide quickly for you might miss out the best one who is really meant for you. Remember, happiness is yours, if you’ll pick it up wisely.
I love this poem for describes our freedom us human beings.
Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts,
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow,
which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them,
but seek not to make them like you.
For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.
You are the bows from which your children
as living arrows are sent forth.
The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite,
and He bends you with His might
that His arrows may go swift and far.
Let your bending in the archer’s hand be for gladness;
For even as He loves the arrow that flies,
so He loves also the bow that is stable.
I LOVED YOU ONCE BABE,
I KNEW IT WAS TRUE;
YOU LEFT ME THEN,
I REALLY DIDN’T KNOW
KNOW WHAT TO DO.
I SAT IN A PUDDLE OF
MY OWN BLOODY TEARS;
WAITING AND HOPING THAT
YOU WOULD REAPPEAR. YOU REALLY HURT ME
WHEN YOU LEFT ME
AND FUCKED AROUND
WITH THAT OTHER DUDE;
YOU CLAIMED THAT
HE WAS JUST A FRIEND
AND ONE-NIGHT STAND,
YOU TOLD ME THAT
I SHOULDN’T BE UPSET
WITH A BAD ATTITUDE. I WAS HEARTBROKEN
AND TORN FROM
THE INSIDE OUT;
AS YOU WERE LEAVING,
I YELLED FOR YOU
TO STAY WITH ME,
BUT I GUESS YOU DIDN’T
HEAR ME SHOUT.
I NEEDED TO BE WITH YOU
AND HOLD YOU IN MY ARMS;
IT’S TOO DAYUM BAD THAT
YOU’RE THE ONE WHO CAUSES
MY HEART SO MUCH HARM.
YOU WERE MY FIRST LOVE
AND MY LASTING ONE AS WELL;
THE MORE I THINK OF YOU,
THE MORE MY HEART SWELLS.
YOU KEPT CALLING ME LATER
AND COMING BACK FOR
ONE MORE CHANCE;
BEGGING AND PLEADING ME
FOR ANOTHER DANCE,
AND ANOTHER CHANCE
TO RECEIVE ROMANCE.
ELECTRICITY AND SPARKS FLY
WHEN YOU SAY MY NAME;
BUT I KNEW DEEP DOWN
IN MY HEART THAT THINGS
WOULD NEVER BE THE SAME.
I GAVE YOUR ASS ANOTHER CHANCE
AND YOU TOOK ADVANTAGE;
I JUST DON’T UNDERSTAND
HOW YOU COULD MANAGE.
YOU WENT BACK TO
YOUR OLD BAG OF TRICKS
BY FUCKING AROUND;
I’M TIRED OF BEING A FOOL
AND FEELING LIKE A CLOWN.
YOU HURT ME SO MANY TIMES,
AGAIN AND AGAIN;
NOW IT’S TIME FOR
MY HEART TO MEND.
I GAVE YOUR AS A SECOND CHANCE,
THIS IS DEFINITELY YOUR LAST;
GET THE HELL OUT OF MY HOUSE,
YOU’LL FOREVER STAY IN MY PAST.
