I Want to be Free

January 9, 2008
By Catherine Hudman, Mullica Hill, NJ

I want to be free
to skip around
to sing a song
to live without a care

I want to live my life to the fullest
to have a burden lifted

I've had my past
and now I'm healing
but I think I'm healing all wrong

God I want to be free!

I'm sick of all these fantasies
I'm sick of all these lies
I don't want your sympathy
I want to see through different eyes

I want this stress to disappear
I just want to fly away
I want to not have to live in fear
and to be weightless night and day

this world is really getting to me
why can't we live in peace
why can't we stop and listen

I just want to be free....
