Free Spirit

Contemplating through my open window,
I gape at open seas,
i descry the life i could have lived,
The one i would've been.
With light blue eyes,
ascending through open skies,
I see the light.
Gleaming like a lemon-shined donut,
drenched in atmospheric shine,
i approach the light.
Holding no denial in my steady beating heart,
I soon forget.
All my sins, my cries,
they clear through the sky.
My spirit fills the air, ever so unobstructed.
I am free.

God bless the one with nerve who wrote this piece here, with steady breathing heart ?  i am sure that you wrote this out of your heart.... keeping studying your work and work harder on this... do not stop writing i have been told...
writing is a craft and skill working itself into art. art is when the reader see things as you see them not just hearing what you say about them... borrowed...j.g.smiles

Nik, It's Rich.  These are really very good and you should be proud that you wrote them.  There are many adults who can't write this well.

I would change the first line immediately.  Contemplating out my aperture is just too misleading - it could mean 'talking out my ass,' pardon my frankness.  It does not inspire the reader to read on, neither does gape.  

Overall, although I know what you mean to present, it isn't strong enough.  You have to be there, in that place, before you can write it.  It isn't coming through strongly as a real place, in my opinion.  

Can you keep revising until the reader can see the image of freedom as clearly as you do?  It's worth the effort.

i like poems on freedom. you wrote this just right.

at first, i was going to suggest making the first line shorter, moving some of the words to another line ... but after reading line fifteen, you realize such a suggestion isn't good.

nice work.
