A poem from my youth

I found this poem I wrote in my diary 18/09/04. It really hits home.
Note: it's unedited as is. I was 20 years old.

I crave this time alone
I long for it
All to myself 
With no one to bug me
I can then think
Really think
About life
Where it's going
Time to reflect
Time to relax
Truly be me
I long for time alone
Time to think
Be free
When I'm done
Truly being alone
I emerge
Into the world
Like a
Beautiful butterfly 
Free at last 
To be totally me
Face this world again
Strong as can be
Beautiful and free
I'm totally me


  1. That's quite powerful. Is there a "like" button? :)

You don't have to agree with all that I am writing about, however please refrain from name-calling, belittling, and bullying. That will not be tolerated here. Thank you.
