A little bit sad,
Not tired of being mad,
Far from happily insane,
Too depressed to feel the pain.
No body cares if you are good,
Nor does it matter if you lose your childhood,
Pleasure is all they need,
Even if your heart if filled with greed.

"Just keep going" they say,
They don't mind even if its not your way,
Walk an unknown path even if you have to crawl,
What ever happens; they say don't fall.
Live a life which you don't want,
The world will race you to the finishing point,
But your dreams are long lost,
And all you did is listen to them at your own cost.

But our lives only end up in our hands,
We shall only play our own bands,
Just trust it in yourself,
Forget every other trickster elf,
Take it just as far as you can,
Be proud, on your own legs you ran.
" Grasping, Breathing In False Pretense"
"Just To Dream, How My Life Turned Out To Be; Hence"

Another one of my tributes :typerhappy: Wish I could propose a toast!
I wrote this poem 2 years ago when I felt as expressed in this piece, It just came out naturally, I didn't know if I wanted Respire or Inspire :pat: Now I just want to spread the word, to children who have felt the same way know that they are not alone. My main message is:
Have you ever felt neglected of thoughts? Despised for being a dreamer? Torn from your desires? Maybe by some one close to you........ :raincloud:
Maybe they meant it for your own good maybe not, If you are indecisive of choosing two paths - One path that leads to your own will and destiny, Its a rough one but its the road you want to take - The other is the path that might give you Fame and fortune but is not really your goal. Being forced to take the wrong ride and live a life which you never wanted is horrendously sad. By heart It takes you no where but to the moment of your last breath to think "If only I had taken the other turn!"
We need to learn to stand up to the offenders, make them understand what being ourself is about and do as we believe. Your path might be full of difficulties but the content that it is your way is what matters the most, which gives you the strength to over throw these obstacles.
Obviously this poem comes with experience of mine which I do not want to share :forgiveme:
But I hope this work may bring a little hope into others :manhug:
But if you don't mind please take a few seconds to post it on the Facebook or Tumblr or Your Blog or Anywhere you want to :onfire: you have my full permission to do so as long as you credit the author or put my name in the description :hug:
Remember this is only to spread hope and help :salute:
Thank you a million for your support :bow:

This is very well written and very well expressed. I know this feeling to a certain point. I have dreamed big and been told that it can never be, that it's impossible to do. Though I have not been directed down another path, I have been contained from going down my path. Though I have finally broken away from such containment and working my up my path, I only wish that I had broken those chains of confinement years ago and not let them keep me from my path. I guess back then I didn't have the strength to break away and now they feel as though nothing will become of it. Perhaps they are right, but perhaps they are wrong. Only time will tell and time is short. But I shall try non the less.

We have all been at that point of judgement, told what's right and wrong, what we can and can't do. The greatest escape is to break those chains like you did.  "Time" some times can tell,  other times it won't, It's all up to you prove them wrong.

I'm glad you like this poem :D
Thank you :hug:

Thank you for the encouragement. I will prove myself that I can.

Your welcome. I found your poem very encouraging and I really could relate to it, a lot. I guess it really hit home with me and really got me thinking over it all. The past, the present and my hopes for the future. And for that, I thank you.

Story of the life... 

I love how you put it into verses, the message and feelings are still there and very clean, but in a beautiful and more expressive way to tell (melodic too :3).

well written.  I know the feelings behind the words all too well.  In the end the path belongs only to the one who walks it.
