It's My Turn, Set Me Free

Balloons Mara

For years I believed in love
that you really cared for me
years I let you ran my life
I have lived with all your lies

now it’s my turn to see
of how life would be
if I’ll look it through my eyes
and let my heart decide

I gave you my heart, my own
made you the center of it all
in return you shower me with pain
for years I cried every night

now it’s my turn to see
of how life would be
if I’ll look it through my eyes
and let me find my way

others have looked me down
but tired of living my life for them
I will pick up the pieces and start anew
with hope at hand I will go on
and find my place among the stars

now it’s my turn to see
of how life would be
if I’ll look it through my eyes
I’ll reach for my dreams

judge me, I don’t mind
I will find myself, my worth
not with your way but mine
time to remove this heavy coat
coat of doubt you made me carry

for it’s my turn to see
of how life would be
I can glimpse a sunny day ahead
road to freedom is very near

I only ask of you, let go of me
let me find my way up alone
you’ve been dragging me for too long
free me from your selfish intentions

in the end if I will miss my chance
there will be no regrets on me
long as I know I have tried my way
so let me go, free me from the chain

for it’s my turn to fly and dream
take the road of success on my own

About R.S. Mallari

Through poetry I am trying to break the barriers of ethnicity, cultures and even beliefs for we humans have the same emotions, the same desires and aspirations. We may differ in colors, in language, and food that we eat yet we are still living under the same sun, swimming and sailing on the same seas and sleeping under the same stars.

Through poetry we can inspire others, we can make someone smile and words can make others cry be it of joy or sadness.
