"I'm selfish, impatient, and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you don't deserve me at my best."
-Marilyn Monroe

The path to freedom is above the clouds
Follow it to the edge of the earth
The clouds will seep into your veins
You will fall deep into the ocean

Peace will soak into your skin
And your heart will pump red liquid love through your body
It will pound on your insides, begging to bleed free
And break the walls that keep it prisoner

You will swallow the warmth
The pain will flee
But the beauty within you
Will never leave

This poem is about freedom and how that can make you feel. For example, it can make you feel relaxed and happy. Also, my poem is about knowing you have beauty inside of you at all times.
