Free As A Bird - By "B"

I was thinking about all of the funny (and not so funny) stories I have about my childhood and realized that I don't have to wait until I have kids of my own to tell them! I created this category "Memoirs of Little B" to serve as a collection of all my memories, stories, favorite things, and works of art.

For my 1st piece of me, I am going to share a poem I wrote when I was about 14. A lot of my poem and story writing days were around this time. It is called "Free As A Bird". Now please don't ask me why I was even thinking about this at that age, because I do not know lol. I used to be a writer/painter/singer back in my youth...very talented lol. Also, I am typing it exactly how it is written on the piece of paper I found lol.

Free As A Bird

Free as a bird
Yeah, whatever, never
No one is free
As a bird
To fly away forever
A bird is not free
from the world
Predators and weather
As long as there's others
Others like you and me
Others like animals
Others like nature
A bird is not free
Free from dangerous animals
cold weather, and weapons
So when you hear that expression
Think again, and again
and remember what you've been told

LOL! Omg I could barely type this without busting out laughing! Profound wasn't it? I wonder what I was going through or what was on my mind to think to write something like this.

Hope you enjoyed reading it as much as I did typing it lol. Stay tuned for more of 
Memoirs of Little B!


  1. Maybe you were punished and just taking it out on paper?? LOL

  2. LOL girl I dont know! I was like why am I talking about predators and weather?! I'd really love to know what was going on lol. I did take a writing class so I wonder if this came from that...

  3. Hmmm....I'm really straining my brain now trying to figure out what was going on back then? lol! When I was your age...well..maybe a year older..I used to write stuff like boys falling off rope bridges needing me to pull them up and leaving it as a "cliffhanger" whether or not I helped them up or let them fall!

  4. @Dee - LOL so maybe it was just in my genes to be thinking of CRAZY stuff to write about then hmmm...
