Everyone has a song

Everyone has a song but most people are afraid to sing it, mention it, or even dare to dream about it. So they listen while other people sing their own songs and never get heard. I’m no musician but I wish that I would take the time to be one because my song rocks hard and sets me free just from writing it on paper. My challenge is…What’s your song?

Here it is :


I am a man born of circumstance

I have dealt with the life given to me

Never once have I fell…. and not crawled out of the living hell

that sometimes life has handed to me

Now you’re standing there with that shitty grin

and you think that you’ve got it all over me

Well I’m not your chump or anybody’s punk…

andΒ  I will always be free!

– I’ll stand and deliver

– My soul will fly free

– Can’t make me shiver

– My soul will fly free

All your fucking rules

say what I can not do

but I’m telling you…

I will be free

Though- you-beat-me-down-

and- you- brow- beat- me…

I will be free

-I will stand and deliver

-my soul will fly free

-can’t make me shiver

-my soul will fly free

‘Cause I’m a man of circumstance…

I have dealt with the life handed to me

Never once have I fell

and not crawled out of the living hell…

That sometime life has handed to me.

        yes, I sing it only to myself, it may be a song to keep myself on check…
        the world is full of love, also full of conflicts..
        Thanks for the positive take on my words.

    Yes! Maintain the rage (and suitably offset by the pic of the anarchic Iggy πŸ™‚

      LOL! I’m glad you noticed the correlation….Most people do not know who Iggy is.

    Its good to see you weight.

    i think in my case it’s more about the music than about the lyrics of a specific song – but one that always lifts my spirit is George Michael’s “I feel good”- and if i wanna get wild it’s “Over the hills” with Nightwish πŸ˜€

      I find it interesting to see what different people say. I’m the kind of guy that likes to have a ball even if I’m just entertaining myself…(drinking and singing on the singstar in my…well you get the picture). I believe that people are afraid to cut loose and have fun and its too bad because it makes for a crappy life!

    I love the pic of Iggy next to the poem…perfect!

      LOL! Be free my dear! Hmmm… it would be interesting hearing your song. I would imagine something like Lennon coming from you. I wonder what it might really be like Gayle?

    I wonder too. Maybe something by the Moody Blues… Lennon is good too!
