#5... From "I Feel Like Writing..."

This is the fifth poem from "I Feel Like Writing."

Lipsayall says...
In my dreams I often fly.....in real life, I mostly stumble and fall.....if only I could be given the gift of wings.......

"to be free to be me...."


What will it take?
How much will I
need to pay?
When can I expect
to find the things...
that will give me

I watch other's,
as they pass by,
doing the things
in life that need to be done...
have to be done...
and they do it with ease.

Not me.

I have to fight.
Fight for my time.
Fight for my space needed.
Fight for the love to be returned.
Fight for my sense
...of me.
Fight for me...
to be free.

Freedom of thought.
Freedom to believe...
especially in me.

I watch the lover's
walking together...
their very walk...
shows their love
for each other,
and their lives... shared.

The magazine's say
love is there...
just look for it.
They tell you to be you.

But who am I?

Am I the one
you smiled at as you
walked down the street?
Am I the one
you bumped into
on your way to ...

Was I the one
you looked at from across the room,
and didn't have time
or courage---
to take the chance?

I've been too long,
doing what others
think I should do.
Too long in being
what others think
I should be.

Doesn't anyone want to know
who I really am?
Or what I really want?
Or how good I can
really be... if given
just a moment of
your time?

questions of my life.
with answers...
without the voice
to express them.

Just ask...please?

You may find
you have the same questions
I have...
and each know
a part of the answer...
and together...
the answer in full.

There is a freedom
called "me."
There is a freedom
to fly and soar
on strong, sure wings.
There is a freedom
and a dream...
of me...
to be me...
with all the questions
and where all the dreams...
become reality.

Hb... Not all our dreams should be realized, I think.

For to have everything, we may lose sight of what we really cherish. Yes, fight for the dreams you feel you most deserve. Give it a voice, and let it be heard. You have that right.
I would wish for you those dreams. And I wish for you a smile upon your face... and a heart that is warm... and thoughtful.

You are such a wonderful person. You should never have to feel "in need" of "more." You should always have that given to you.
hug, me

Artistic... you are most welcome.
And thank you for your visit to my address here in blogland. I hope you come by often. It's always nice to see and meet a new friend. with smiles, unlisted
