Love brings life

Freedom, you feel unfamiliar

I feel unworthy of enjoying the caress of the sun, I feel sinful with every breath of fresh air I inhale,  I look strange with no black eye, cuts and bruises, I feel naked with no chains around my body.   Freedom, I feel uneasy with you.  Freedom, I feel like I don’t deserve you.  […]
