Prose for Thought – I’m Free. #Prose4T

One of the things I love about running this link is the inspiration it seems to give people who wouldn’t normally write poetry to actually sit down and give it a try. I had tweets this week from both Lorraine at Gin and Cornflakes and Karen at Woman Wife Mum saying that they had given it a go (I hope the fact that I have now mentioned them, doesn’t put them off!). It is great to try something new and it shows that you can do it if you really try!

This week some of you may have read my Magic Moments post,Court Out There! Around two years earlier, I was finally started to realise what I had been through and below is something I wrote at that time. It was written as a song with two verses and a chorus (I have loads of these in my poetry book!).



I’m Free

Walking around with a blindfold on

Didn’t see at the time what was so wrong

And now I thank God you are gone

I’m so glad to be moving on


I’m free, my life’s so full

I’m free, no more the fool

I’m free, to feel the pull

I’m free, to swim life’s pool


I believed you when you said day was night

I now know nothing you did was right

I used my strength, with all my might

I will stand my ground, stand up and fight


I’m free, my life’s so full

I’m free, no more the fool

I’m free, to feel the pull

I’m free, to swim life’s pool

    Great piece and one I’ve just realised has some parallels with what I’ve posted. I’ve cheated and used an old poem, hope that’s ok! X

    Just like Sarah – I sang it to the Soup Dragons song too!! This is a very liberating poem, that could well described my own split from my ex husband. Thank you for putting it into words and sharing it. And thank you for hosting the link xx

    That really is a brilliant song, you have such a talent for this. (I couldn’t help singing it to the Soup Dragons’ I’m Free tune in my head!)
