    Feel Free

    The only place where I feel at peace
    Is in the computer world,
    Cyberspace.
    In this place,
    You don't need to look anyone in the face.
    Don't have others put you down cause of race.
    In this “other dimension”
    I feel free
    To try to be me.
    Feel free to take a stand.
    Feel free to take command.
    In this place, others look up to me.
    Say that I'm as cool as cool can be.
    I just wish the same was true
    But, in this world,
    in reality,
    I'm pretty much
    a “social casualty”.
    In this world,
    I try to hide.
    Don't have the courage
    To do otherwise.
    Past torments come into play
    Whenever I open my mouth to say
    Anything to anyone.
    I just try to get through the day.
    Wishing I had the courage to say
    What's on my mind.
    To stand up to those
    Who are unkind.
    Through constant study
    And prayer
    The Good Lord above
    Will get me there.
    He stays with me
    All the day through
    To give me the strength
    To do what I need to do.
    With His help
    I can try
    To show the world that
    There's more to me
    Than what meets the eye.
    He's been helping me
    To feel just as free
    In this place
    As I do
    In Cyberspace.

    Again, I like the way you take your personal feelings, put them in rhyme form and end the verse with a positive slant. That is the difference between poetry and self wallowing to me. I really enjoy reading your poetry. Don't be fooled by the illusions outside of cyberspace.

    I thoroughly like this poem. Thanks for writting it. Your poems need a book of their own so they can be read as a banquet.

    Poetry is not the expression of personality but an escape from personality.
