>Alone

>

It’s been a while since I wrote anything ain’t it people??? I didn’t mean to leave you (probably non-existent followers of my blog) alone, it’s just that I’ve been kinda busy(plus I’ve not really had much to tell…). But, recently, I’ve been looking through my poem book, and I’ve decided to share one or two of them with you.
I wrote this one, at a time where I was going through some soul searching, and a lot of my true friends, the people who are most important to me, and think like me, where not around.
Alone

I want to be as free as a spirit.
A man with no limits,
Pick up a pen and a pad; put things down how I see them.
Not hindered by laws of what should be and what should not,
Or locked down by another person’s train of thought.

To understand how I must live, what it is I must give,
Or take up.
To realize where I’m asleep,
And if I have to wake up.
To carry the world of my thoughts on my shoulders
Like a regular atlas.
And without those of my kind,
Who understand my type of mind,
Without the comfort of souls to which I can bind,

I find that I am alone.
But if this is how I must live,
The sacrifice I must give,
For my eyes to start to see,
To become the man I need to be,
So at the end of all this, my life doesn’t fade into superfluity,
If I must shoulder this burden all on my own,
Then truly, to become a man,
I first must stand alone.
