Tonight


Tonight I can dance
Just to let go…
To forget that they are watching
All those fools who are judging

Tonight I can sing…
To the tune of dawn’s harp
Just to play hard to get
For all those who took me for granted

Tonight I can write…
Just for the joy of creating
Just to anger them
To break the rules they set

Tonight they have come to jeer…
All those who hurt and haunted me
All those who killed the dreams they made me dream…
So tonight…I break free…

Its a beautiful poem...sometimes,we do need to set ourselves free from all worldly ties...I felt like me in this poem...[I hope I make sense]...Its very realistic...like a cry against all odds...thoughtful verses which can only come from you...lovely...keep writing

I sense Neruda's influence here. :)

Break free and soar!
