    Completely free to be me
    What you get is what you see
    I'm in my own world .. create my own reality
    Cause the hell that I live in ain't how it's posed to be

    Wrong or Right, still I fight
    From the deepest of strife
    By choice I am alone .. nobodies wife
    So far just a plight .. still a long way to go
    From the sun to the snow.. rather hot to the cold..
    hard life made me bold .. young intreverted to old..
    If you know what I know...

    We have a long way to go.....

    Those who forget the past fo sho will repeat..
    The vicious cycles we sucomb to are sure to defeat..
    The whole reason for changed seasons is to evolve til you whole
    Fall everything is dyin ... preparing for cold..
    Spring is full of Hope to show things which appear dead are alive..
    I want an endless summer ... a natural high...

    Naturally free to be me
    What you get is what you see
    Black woman so precious .. the most precious I be
    Mother to the earth .. Justice my enemy..

    We have a long way to go..

    Until we get free .......

    Yes there's a reason for every season, we can try to forget about winter and try to remain in spring, but each year winter returns regardless. Hopefully we will build upon each season, continuing to grow. Wonderful write.

    Nice flow.
    You are not wrong to fight for life.
    Vicious cycles you see and feel are real
    Keep up the fight and never give up
    Change is always on the horizon

    Hi Miss Lady
    So true we do have a long way before we are truly free
    Great poem sis. We still have to fight and the struggle goes on
    And I love lines
    because we all need to be comfortable with ourselves
    and you flow have shown me that

    Peace and love sis

    Happy Holiday
