Now im free

Updated on January 30, 2012

Now I'm Free

Once by love

Once by hate

Now by both

I am fueled

By my grief

Now it pains me

to even live

But still I'm not so

selfish as to die

Though I cry

By pain and grief

I was chained

Now they've broken

I've told the truth

Now I'm free

Come meet me

Feel my sadness

Yet feel my glee

I cry

I cry

Chains around me

Broke and gone

Pained yet free

      Beautiful and heart wrenching at the same time. Lovely too! I have been there and understand.

      I understand those words, yet I am not free from the loss of my mother. Your heart and soul was poured into this poem. Thumbs Up! :)

      I can relate to this in many ways particularly from my past experiences. This is really great! Very deep and I can feel a sense of release. Voting up!
