Free From Dream



When I was young
I used to pretend
Like I was a bird
Singing the songs to be heard
But it was heard by none

When I was thirteen
I started to sing
I thought myself as rock star
Who never knew how to play guitar
But my dream was to be a rock and roll king

When I was forty
I sailed my ship to sea
When I saw the sun hit the ocean floor
I smiled cos I found what I adored
It was nothing but I got to know I was free finally

I just try to dig inside my thought and ask who I want to be, what personality I want to adapt. It works every time cos writing always makes me forget my real world and live in my own paradise. Period! more…
