The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams-Eleanor Roosevelt


Look clearly, then believe
I lead my life alone
You may ask why I do that
But the truth is not yours to know
Because you will doubt what I'm about
Then my spirits will fade away
Then I'll be trapped within your attack
With dreams being my escape
To aspire; be inspired
By long, hard roads that drift ahead
By your demanding comes no understanding
Why I would choose to forget
Safe comforts that drift in slumber
Now I risk sleeping with wolves
But free is free and I am me
And that's a choice you'll never know
Because you won't know what it's like to roam
To run to where kingdoms could be
So I run swift, otherwise I might miss
The morning sun rising in glory
So you won't choose what I'm to do
You will have no control
Because this day is mine to escape
So now I'll be going all on my own

I love this, I can relate to it. I've actually been going through a lot of stuff like that. People judge me before they know me. Love it! Keep writing!
