What I wouldn't give to be free.

Free from the hearts of men

Free from the decisions in life

Free from the criticism of peers

Free from the rudeness of strangers

Free from the prying eye of others

Free from the emotions that crowd my heart

Free from the scenes that cloud my eyes

Free from the pain that I experience when I see you

Free from the stupidity of those I talk to

Free from the hatred encases my body

Free from the fear I experience at the thought of our meeting

Free from the life that I am part of

Free from the dread that fills my heart

What I wouldn't give to be free
