In life there are no failures, just personal experiences and one's reaction to them.


Free!
I once was down
My smile once a frown
But now that I have chosen to be me
I am no longer down,







I am free!
Now that I’m free
I have the confidence
To be anything I want to be,









I am free!
Being free has really changed me
I am a better me
I’m not one to scheme
I no longer sting like a bee
But am gentle
Like the breeze through a tree,









I am free!
Free is not a state of being
But a state of mind
One that for me
Was not so easy to find
Free and me
Sometimes seemed as though
We were not meant to be
But now that I am comfortable being me,













I am free!
I am free to laugh
It’s no longer fake
I am free to let people go
It’s for my own sake
I am free to smile
Others try to bring me down
I am no longer lost
I am free to say
I have been found
I am free to be me
To let other’s see
Exactly who I am supposed to be
And the real me is,






Free!
Can’t you see?
Free was always meant to be,









I am free!
