" How wonderful it it, that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world"

~Anne Frank

I am myself, I am not you, and you are not me.
I make my own decisions;  my own mistakes.
I am free to do what I choose,
feel what I want to feel,
and see what I want to see.


I used to be a crow,trapped in the cage
of the rules I've been given.
becoming more sorrowful each minute.
But now I am an Eagle,
Flying above the clouds to avoid the rain.
I am smarter now,
now that I make my own decision.
