From Caged Buttafly by Maisha M. Durham (author's profile)



Everything I am, you wish you could be.
Never in all you life could you be
Vying to find the peace and contentment of my life
Yearning to live without the stress or strife

My life is my own to live and enjoy
You can never penetrate it no matter the play
It's taken time; strength; patience, endurance
and wisdom to become me

I have not always been this person that
you strive so hard to be

Envy, I'm releasing the bondage that you have
over me,
Its time that you live you life and stop
Trying to be me.
