Let Me LIve

July 19, 2011

How can I be what I want to be?
When I want to be you.
How can I be lustful with who I want?
When I will burn for eternity,because of it.
How can I fit the clothes and look like what I want to look like?
When there's someone saying they're better.
When will I live?
When I could have sworn I was already dead.
When will I escape?
If there is no exit.
How can I walk?
If I have no legs.
How will I speak?
If my tongue is in your mouth being taken away.
All I want is to be me.
I was born and now I'm here.
So dear please let me live.

The author's comments:
My piece is not necessarily about me. It is about a emotion I felt or witnessed someone else feeling. I was truly inspired by Lady Gaga and her new album Born This Way. I hope people will get a feel of freedom.
