A Wish For Freedom

I, a child birthed in chains

Raised in a cage

But on this day- they will break
-
I was taught self-hatred
Learning that the differences were divided
Among the people who are considered “civilized “

Forcefully combining my fear and envy
As I was raised in the middle of this society
My power and pride were deprived of me

I was only an empty vessel
Believing that all promises were fabled
But once upon a calm- I witnessed hope's revival

Wings sprout from my tongue / Words from my soul are sung
A new voice's journey has begun / Let the era of silence be undone

Obtaining peace of mind / Experiencing freedom of heart
Allowing the colors to shine / The future will blind the scars

I had to fight the system; I had to stop the cycle
It was either my downfall or survival
So I reversed this downward spiral

Care not, for those who maim
Fear not, for those who damn my name
Weep not, for those who choose to go the other way

I told myself that I will survive
And I will no longer enable others to control my life
For the path I'm now walking on is one that I can finally call mine
-
I, a child who will make a difference

To create an identity and gain independence

Today I will grasp my long awaited freedom
I, a child who will become unbroken

To be proud to be different

I will no longer be silent

So...another powerful poem and the words are something which should be told all over the world..It is okay to be who you ARE and not who they WANT you to be...Life is hard enough without all the added hate and unspoken words,just their glances tell you how they feel...You have grown alot over these last few months and I am so proud of you!
Keep it up and don't ever give in to their madness!! Hugs!!!

Such a wonderful poem, it is written (or typed) so well and the message is so powerful, so apprehensive. I'm reminded of A Child Called It. c:
