They Said (Poem)

I was wild

Had little control

When I was brought in they said

I talked to birds and butterflies.

Made pictures they called incident

The words they used confused, abused

It’s only you wee friend they said

Time moved on as it’s apt to do

They grew names teachers turned our minds anew

Whenever an old or different thought came to our head

Listen to what we say first that is what they said

So here I am released a man your youth

Inside abides:a part of me is dead

I graduated now to search for truth

To filter through this head those things they said

Harden lips

Turn wings to bright stars

It’s there while there is still time

It is difficult when people do not understand a free spirit and how much they need to express themselves differently. Great poem!

Few understand the nature of true freedom like some do. It is a different plane altogether.
