Being free

Being Free.

Don’t need no piles of money,
Ain’t got no strong desires.
My hormones don’t control me,
And cause too many fires.
I’ve got family around me
And we like to share a joke.
Sometimes I like a drink or two
And have a little smoke.

Ain’t got no strong religion,
I don’t have no beliefs.
But I’ve got a rich philosophy,
And I float just like a leaf,
On the river as I flow along
Being endlessly.
Merging with the breath of life
And all its mystery

I don’t need other people
Though they’re welcome to my show.
Maybe we’ll have a bonding,
And we’ll all start to flow.
I’ll give folk my compassion
And I’ll love them, if I can
That’s just who I am today?
I’m just that kind of man.

    Peter, I think you gave me an idea.. Maybe I can write less deep and epic stuff. Perhaps, it will trigger a write. hehe..I never thought of doing it that way. I don't want to give up on writing, but lately I have started to write a poem, then I put it away. I can't seem to get pass a 5th or 10th line... Thank you for the comment...:) about your poem.. i like the free feeling of you once again. I notice, you are very relaxed. always enjoying to hear from you...xox..LINDA

    Linda, if I tried to write something with the words and depths of what you write, I would never be able to write at all. I have only simple words to use and they just flow when ever I want them. Maybe if you wrote a little simpler for a while then your muse would pick up again And you would again burst with life. Sometimes it just takes a little lightening up ,and relaxing. You are a wonderful poet, and you could write in any way you want
