I am a very shy, but outgoing teenager. I write because I don't talk well to others. This is my outlet for my depression.

Free Of Me

March 10, 2016

PROMPT: Open Prompt

Free of the cursed ties that bind
Free of the chains that held me tight
I once seemed a slave
To the evil, their prey
But I’m free today
Free of eternal darkness of night
Free to bask in glorious light
I once was so weak
To the strong, the meek
But still I’m free
Free to sing my song of art
Free to love with all my heart
I once was a fool
To the wicked, a mule
But now I rule
I’m a slave no more
I’ve opened the door
No longer to be
In misery
Although I’m free
These cursed memories
Will always be
A part of me
And in the darkness of night,
Sometimes they still give me quite a fright
Inside I will always be
Afraid of who I used to be
I can never be at peace with me
Because of whom I used to be
Somehow I can never be
 The person you all see as me
I’ve tried, but I just can’t be free
I’ll never be free of my misery
No matter whom I seem to be,
Just know I am still me
I just want to be free of me
But I am proud of who I am
No matter where I stand
The only the only thing
Keeping me from being free
I want to be free of my cursed memories
But my memories are a part of me
And I will never be free
