You don't own me!

I have to look past all of this pride,

but the pride holds you to it's energy.

I have cried all of the tears for the rivers.

Can't supply you with food for your feast.


You can sip and drink from the river,

but when it turns to blood you have to leave.

You can swim anytime in this river,

but when you drown me I will have to leave.


I need something in my life to give me strength.

I need something more than you to push me away.

I need god to send an angel today.


You can push me

you can break me down,

but in the end it will all come back to you


I will fall

you don't have to catch me

because in the end you don't own me.


Take a look at yourself,

see your reflection

You smile as you see me wimpering.

You can't hide your deepest intentions.

You waste everything about me.


Take a look at your life,

is it everything you wanted?

Am I everything you want me to be?

Your self control will be tested.

You Can't avoid it.

I will forever be locked in your memory.


I need something in my life to give me strength.

I need something more than you to push me away.

I need god to send an angel today.


You can use me

You can waste me now,

but in the end it will all return to you


If I fail

you don't have to chase me

because in the end you don't own me


No one can ever own me now.

Oh wow, a beautiful poem from you, Chrissie. I missed your writing.

Wow, no person should ever "own" another person. Human ego can be such a bad trip. There is a lot going on in this hub and it comes down to finding someone special in life who can be so nurturing and giving, and not taking.

A true lover and friend and confidant would never hurt us. I have never been a fighter kind of person. I have never been a willing "punch bag" for another person.

I would not let someone push me or try to drown me, no matter how much they loved me. It isn't love.

The person who loves me - accepts my faults and imperfections. And I feel the same way. When we find that person who accepts us for who we are and what we are, then we know it is love.

Thank you Astra! It is so nice to "see" you again! I know I am replying very late, but I only get on here on rare occasions. I enjoy reading your comments. I feel a sense of honest wisdom in each one you leave. I also feel a since of hope. I will post more writing as soon as I can and I look forward to your opinions :) I hope all is well.

Great poem, Chrissie.

No one can own you, true. Perhaps you are a unique creation of Love. What do you think? Higher blessings on this holiday Monday. Salaam!

Thank you Manatita! I really like that "a unique creation of love". I have never thought about myself like that, but perhaps it is true since I am so fascinated by all things love and emotion. Higher blessings to you too and thank you for the wonder comment.
