She could not help it, she just had to go where her heart desired
Where she felt the most at ease, even if she wasn’t free
She would find a way, no matter if she was tired
She no longer wanted to be where she was denied and lied to eternally

She would forge a trail, of her own sheer freewill
By plane, by train, by bike or by foot
She’ll would get there, even if she was ill
And when she arrives, she’ll dance and she’ll hoot
She’ll stand on the corners, and sing very bad french
No inhabitant of France will be able to refute
She loves us and our country, this silly wench

The desire to be free to live and to love as I please…to control my own destiny.

I have a deep love for expressionism – ‘Expressionistic artist sought to develop pictorial forms which would express their innermost feelings rather than represent the external world. Expressionist painting is intense, passionate and highly personal, based on the concept of the painter’s canvas as a vehicle for demonstrating emotions. Violent, unreal color and dramatic brushwork make the typical expressionistic painting quiver with vitality.’ This is what I try to achieve when I paint.

    great words of Determination

  • I want to be free Alan, I have been kept in chains and bondage for years and years. You can not see the bars of my prison, because it is all based on hate, and the denial of rights, but believe me they are there. Smiles from Jane:-)

    You will arrive, and you will escape the injustices that never should have happened. I enjoyed your desire to free yourself and your verses tell the story. Inside of you is a beautiful person that will not be defeated in the end. Hold your head high and walk out the front door knowing that you will be free. Wow, wish I could write about what you wrote, there is so much in your words to reflect upon and to tell others that there is a place to go to. Find it inside your mind, release it in words so that the mind can break those chains, then when the time is right, remember my words, "Why wait, be somebody, right now. Good luck, and thanks for sharing your inside of you, you rock. Your wonderful comments are always appreciated. Smile, there, thanks, I saw it!

  • I love your writing style Oscar. You are a very good writer. And I enjoy your positive thinking. Believe me I need it right now, my life is very difficult. People are always ready and willing to put up obstacles for me, and I do not know if this is ever going to change. The police have a lot of power, and they enable others to target me along with them. That is why I so desire to go someplace where I can be free from persecuation and abuse like most other people are. I have people who target me constantly with their abuse and controls and I am so very tired of this. It has cost me everything in my life, including my health and my children. I WANT TO BE FREE, enough is enough. The people who abuse me always have some shameful lie of an excuse as to why they are doing what they are doing but the truth is they are just abusing me. I do not want to be their floormat anymore. I do not treat them this way. They are terrible people and should be very ashamed of themselves but they are not. Is it not understandable that after thirteen years of this tremendous torture that I want to be liberated? However, unbelievably I am still denied, and lied about and to. I appreciate your friendship and understanding. Thank you for viewing, reading, and commenting. Just Jane—-

    I have always known that some things happen for a reason, we may not agree, but in the end you will have the last laugh. For whatever reason they choose to do this,it is for their personal gain, however, you will not be denied your justice in the end. I believe strongly in your will power, and when you make the move, a new beginning will take place. Give it time, give it hope, give it all you got and good things come to those that never give up. Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts and for reading my comments and stories. One day soon you will look at all of this and say that you learned something from it, trust me, you will be more than just anybody. You will walk on pedals of gold, you will smile at those than from you stole, never again will your pride be under sold, and justice will come your way for being so bold. Let me see you smile again, beautiful, now hold it a little longer, there, you are now a better person already and your friends will help you through. Have a great day, on me, no charge.

  • Thank you Oscar. Your words mean very much to me. There is one thing they are keeping from me that I really want. I have not had it in thirteen years. That is my health. They have left me like this on purpose and they refuse to put me back together. I am hoping this is going to change but even if it does, and they do provide medical services to me, I am terrified of them and what they might do. I want to believe what you say, that one day soon I will be free of this. The torments and the agony. I so much want my body back. My health. I want to run, jump, swim, and all the other things I have not been able to do for over a decade. I want them to give me back what is mine. My body. And then if they would let me have a life without harassment that would be nice to. Thank you so much for your inspirational thoughts and words. Believe me they do help to soothe me. You are truly a kind and gentle man, and a wonderful writer. Smiles from Jane:-)
