Free to Feel

Form: Free Verse

Should I be sad when thinking
of all those years
not knowing who I am
what I am
and why
the certainty of never knowing why
surely doesn’t hurt me
but now what and who is my own
my heart is still human
though I am loathed to admit it
but I still love
hope and believe
I still cry burning tears of pain
and desire
desires I have always known
and desires unknown
my passions are alive now
defying the odds
like a beast released
from the confines of a cage
free to feel
free to know
free to prowl in the open
instead of the shadows of life
no I should not be sad
for happiness is mine for the taking
