I'll Be Me

Put down the walls and set yourself free...

Strip down naked and feel the rain through the trees...

Open your mouth and taste life as its meant to be...

Display your soul , for the world must see...

On a canvas or a stage to a blank paper, I'll be me...

    That's exactly how we should live our lives. We can't try to meet others' expectations, so let's just be ourselves, Michael. (I wonder what the neighbors would think if I streaked up and down the block?) Love, Carolyn

    This is almost a monorhyme. Your five lines are collectively qute descriptive. This was nice to read.

    Love it...there is such a sense of unleashed freedom of oneself screaming inside each one of us....needing those moments to open our souls! Lots to think about!!

    The most explicit way to pour out my soul is through music and writing. what actually matters is to use a medium and not to talk about the medium, use it , it obeys. love, melody maker.
