for a friend

by Kimberly Bauer

No strings, no ties, I must be free to fly.
Down to try anything once or again,
To let live or let die.
The king of Charm.
Everyone loves me.
But no one has a clue.

I can't be like them.
I can't be good.
I can't be enough.

I'll never belong.
But should I be forced to try? I see beyond the facade of humanities dull mindset I am not bound by the fickle possessions that define these souls I, and only I,control my inclinations and I move with the sea that I was born beside. I will not belong or even attempt to be like them I have no need to hide

I Move from state to state or oversees,
Not even soil can claim me.
Living the unorthodox life of a 21st century gypsy soul.

The twisted mix of talent and refuge.
Of achievement and personal solace.

I am not a mouse in a maze.
I refuse to play.

The way you wrote this, I am there, feeling it. I've been through this, too - it never seems to really brush off like we'd hope, the feeling of *not good enough*. Sigh. This poem is beyond good.
