"Do something. Either lead, follow, or get out of the way." - Ted Turner

Name unknown
Friends and enemies alike
Thumbtack stuck in a balloon that can’t break
On the verge of popping
Waterfalls about to roll over rocks
Tears wedge ravines in the mud
Don’t tell me how to live.

Take my love, take my land, take me where I cannot stand. I don't care, I'm still free, you can't take the sky from me. Take me out to the black. Tell 'em I ain't coming back. Burn the land and boil the sea, but you can't take the sky from me.

It's a very simple, to- the- point poem that illustrates amazing insight into the turmoil of the tortured human mind.  I particularly like line 3.  Good work!
