I Am Soaring…..

on February 20, 2015

“I AM SOARING”

I want Free
free
free
That is what I desire
That is what I need

Trapped in a perception of
less than and inferior
held captive
when those in charge
are without
intellect, concrete thinking
math skills
forced to adhere to
illogical, nonsensical, irreverent
absurd and never
ending
extreme
stupidity
no room
for dignity
or compassion

I want Free
free
free
That is what I desire
That is what I need

Wondering how? why?
what for? and what next?
moving through this space with an
open mind
mindlessly moving
forward to
another space in my head
to get to where
I want
I need and
still being true
to where I am
stuck in
someone else’s
DREAM

I want Free
free
free
That is what I desire
That is what I need

Intrinsically knowing
always open for
new
answers
to new questions
and still remaining
loving in the
absence of a
clear premise for where
who and when the love
is needed wanted
or desired
I AM WOMAN
my heart
screams and the world
yells back vehemently
SO WHAT!!

I want Free
free
free
That is what I desire
That is what I need

No more searching
or questioning
a sense of belonging
giving only what I
feel like giving
and absolutely
no more
moving through this
process with
all of me
with
soul
truth and
complete dignity
I WONT BE DENIED!

I want Free
free
free
That is what I desire
That is what I need

Forever the optimist
not because of others
only depending on
my own heart desires
and knowledge of
my own
consciousness of truth
interconnected
tethered and
bred in
a systemic
country that
has countrywomen/men
who make
the wrong damn rules
that blind our
perceptions of
what this all is
and gives
way to our
innate ability to
hate instead
of love

I am FREE
FREE
FREE
That is what I AM
That is all I will ever BE!
