Do you remember years ago?
when we were young and free
And how we would Dance and Dance,
We had no shame or fear,
Everything was a game, Everything was an adventure
I taught you how to ballroom, and you taught me the tango
We made magic everyday in those
Deserted gold streaked fields
How we would twirl and the wind would rush through our hair
It was then that i was free
Now i am a disgrace to my childhood self
In a cage of my own making
My spirit is locked in a cocoon
How do i get free?
I claw away like a vicious cat
There is no out it seems,
That is when i realize, its not my body that’s caged
Its my spirit, my carefree, happy and bubbly self
Its a mental locking of my own accord
It is then that i release and LET GO,
i AM Free again, running into the sunset
I am HAPPY, everyday is a blessing, A Gift from God.
I will be Joyous in this moment,
Once again i will dance in the fields i used to roam as a little girl
The Wind blows into my afro, or maybe NOT!
I breathe in the daises, tulips and grass
i AM Home….
Yours Shamelessly and Freely
