poem - wild and free

by dog e relaford

i want to be wild
i want to be free
i want to live forever
i want to be me

why won't they let me
be what i want to be
because all i ask
is not to wear a mask

as the moon directs its beams
the gypsy in my dreams
in her gossamer disguise
leans over me and cries

o who did this to you?
just because your heart was true
you only wanted a little time
and not be treated like lowlife slime

every wave in the sea
wants to be free
and wants it more and more
until it crashes on the shore
