Written on the first of December, 2005.
Please review if you enjoy my work.
My mind is quite my own.
When I'm alone
I see things others don't-
Cannot, should not, or won't!
I am free within that realm,
Guiding my ship by its helm.
Nobody has authority to say me 'Nay'.
It is quite the other way.
I am young and innocent-
I would not go where others went.
My own path I must carve a way,
Through the night, and through the day.
No prison is too stern for me!
Imagination sets me free!
And while confined
I'm free in mind.
Free!- the bars of monotony,
Do not cease to set me free
And if life itself were prison guard,
Freedom would be no less hard.
I soar my way in dreams content-
A princess to a prison lent.
I will exalt in power given!
Foes may assail- but soon are driven.
Freedom's gained and hope is wrought,
When I let Imagination out.
Though simple, plain, and quite absurd,
I have wings as if a bird.
