BREAK-AWAY AND BE FREE

A caged bird sings on the grave of dreams. His shadow shouts on a nightmare scream,his wings are clipped and his feet are tied. So he opens his throat to sing a fearful thrill, of things unknown but longed for. His tune is heard on the distant hill, for the caged bird sings of freedom ,but a free bird,leaps on the back of the wind and dips it's wings in the orange sun rays and dares to claim the sky."Maya angelou -Cage Bird
We go through life searching for Purpose trying to achieve the goals which have been subconsciously embedded in us. Ambition grows and the lives we want to live begin to appear within our reach.it becomes the reason for our existence. We never want to be anything less than great.we don't want to fall short.Then you realize you have been basing your life on what people think.
And sometimes it seems like nobody cares. All the good times start to weigh heavily. Tomorrow comes, and goes,nothing can ever be the same.
I understand now that I'm pretty much on my own,And a lot of what I do will never be known. And everything I endure I will have to keep in which only causes me to retreat inwards as I evolve in my new skin
It dawns on me now that I have fought to become who I am and what I want to be.
I have to remind myself I am free,i am no longer a child. Nothing is mild. Nothing is fair.
I no longer expect the unrealistic, I let go of what I knew yesterday.
For what I know now is the truth, no longer a misconception of this reality but my reality .
I open my ears,my heart and my head for the first time in a long time .
I then free my soul .
I refuse to be like the cage bird. No longer will I wish for. I will go out and get.
I then spread out my arms and with a loud sigh I release it all and vow to be like a free bird and soar high in th sky under the beauty of the sun's ray's
