This is no more than a surmise

I have only authority over me
Just me
But my freedom yes freedom
Is hard earned

Am free - even from myself
Myself?Like the flowing water
I can take so many forms

Some see what contains me as me
No I don’t mean my body shape nor
a bucket or a chattery stream

They see me inside their head
In their head they have created
A vessel to contain people like me

Once I became a hammer in someone’s head
That very same person used the hammer
To hit their head I just provided the additional

I have my opinions about the way I see the world
I can only share it with you as a gesture of love
Because I feel at peace with myself entertain
Yourself with the idea that you are safe with me
No need to escape and make me the monster
In your head that wants to enslave you because
Even if you think that am a part of the monster now
That is not true that is the vessel you created for
People that seem to be like me.

Know yourself not your experiences and you will feel me
And if they placed you in a box inside their head you are
Not what they think you can do for them when they open
The box in their head give you a call. You exist even when
They are not around no need to remember who you are to
Them so you can be you.
