UNFREEOnce again I sit here, my mind UNFREE

I gave my love to someone, who gave no love to me

My heart filled with sorrow, my soul in disbelief

I gave my love to someone, who gave no love to me

Perhaps I’ll share my love again, or maybe I won’t

Perhaps I’ll do what was done to me, I pray that I don’t

To knowingly cause pain, is the ultimate sin

Especially when that someone, was a lover or a friend

I lie in this hospital-like state, blaming the Lord for my fate

I wonder how my unselfish deeds, rewarded her selfish needs

It’s easy to blame another, for what was done to me

However, I’ll blame no one, the facts are in 3D

Being deceived, hurt and humiliated, are normal emotions

But conquering anger and revenge, is power, stronger than any ocean

I pray to the Lord, to hear my plea

To invigorate my mind, and help me become free

Until that time, I will write these lines, I will take no prisoners

You see, vengeance is not mine

I understand the other side and what could possibly be

Till then I continue to sit here, my mind UNFREE.
