i crave freedom no mandates no commandments

freedom that allows me to recapture the dignity that was taken

i will lessen my own exaggerated suffering

i deal with disagreeable attitiudes on a regular basis

i catch myself watching my words as so they don't slip out

                             exhaustion and frustration

at times i thought i was destined to die alone

acting on decisions forced me into them

nothing is so painful or unsurmountable than in my journey now

i realize that my insecurity and ego are curiously linked

they trigger my fears and my defects

chocked with emotion as i watch my life unfold

i am arresting my growth based on intangible

i am the creator of my own reality

i find solace from personal confusion

i wave the white flag and finally breathe again

    insecurity and ego are always linked for me. that's because the ego is constantly trying to uphold itself and its principles,and it's in constant danger of not being noticed. I hope you don't mind my slight critique but I feel this could benefit tremendously from a little spelling grammar touch ups. you can paste it into MS word and run a spell check on it, that should catch most of the errors. otherwise this gets right at the heart of the human experience, I need your secret for the white flag.
