Without inhibitions

Updated on June 29, 2011


Without Inhibitions


I've never been able

to fully lose my inhibitions

I've never been able

to fully chase and realise my ambitions.


The person we are

Is it the person we always are?


Taken over by thoughts and imagination

Hearts that beat a little bit faster

Not caring if people laugh or point

or even if they ignore you.


Maybe i'm envious.

Jealous of those

Who can

Who can seemingly do anything.


Their spirit runs amok

Dancing long and free

They are the few.

Am i destined to be one of the many.

A watcher.

      There is nothing wrong with being a watcher, Michael m'dear ... it just means you are less embarrassing than some of us! And let's face it, there are plenty out there who really should be watching rather than doing ...

      And as for your inhibitions ... you may find that they diminish as you get older ... so no hurry ... just enjoy being you, whatever that is.

      What Angie said :)

      I've been steadily losing my inhibitions since I was about twenty, Michael, and now that I'm 34 I have almost none left. I wonder what I'll be like when I'm in my eighties and beyond!

      Sometimes I do like to watch other people being uninhibited though - even if it's just to get ideas!

      Excellent hub by the way. It's a goodie! I like this verse in particular:

      'Maybe i'm envious.

      Jealous of those

      Who can

      Who can seemingly do anything'

      because it says exactly what I used to ask myself, and asked myself for years.

      I agree with Angie, anyway - just enjoy being yourself, and enjoy finding out what you become; we're all changing, even when we think we've finished evolving, the process never really ends.

      Lx.
