I can find my own way.
I need not
Contort myself into the box
You've built for me.
I'll use it as a trash can for every
Piece of me
That I no longer need.
And if I get lost,
I need not
Worry,
For there was never a set path
Anyways.

"For there was never a set path anyways" this particular sentence touched me deeply cuz it is TRUE. It reminded me of this quote:" Do not go where the path may lead. Go instead where there's no path and leave a trail" It's kind of the same meaning. In this life, we don't have to follow a specific way, or plan for everything. For life demands nothing but to be lived fully and just let things happen as they are meant to. In the end we might end up right where we belong ^_^ Keep up the great work. Thank you so much for the inspiration. 5/5 :D

To love is to be vulnerable; Triumph is born out of struggle; We notice shadows most when they stand alone in the midst of overwhelming light.

Very true. I love this. Your poem is really beautiful and deep and amazing. Thank you for sharing this.
