The Rebel Life

The Rebel Life

A Poem by JELLYCAT


I am good trouble waiting to happen,
An explosion of fun buried under old conventions.
I rise above only to tell you what your unconscious already knows.

One day you wake up to the sound of the truth and it shakes you.

Jump higher, reach farther,
And be ungrounded from this place.
Create Change
And love will shine through this haze.

You belong to no one but yourself.
You have no master, don't believe their lies.
You owe them nothing.

One day you wake up to the sound of the truth and it shakes you.

Don't look for me.
I am gone.
You are here still and breathing.
And remember this my friend:
Freedom is found only in the mind.

I regret to say I didn't watch the video but I loved this all the same. I interpreted this religiously, because the narrator seems to be rather all knowing and wise such as The Lord. I think I agree with freedom only being found within oneself. In reality one can only be free to such a certain extent and this isn't a bad thing nor is it particularly good. I love the repeated line, 'One day you wake up to the sound of truth and it shakes you'. Something that will be left from this poem inside of me. This left quite the impression on me, thank you for sharing.

For me real freedom comes with knowing where I will spend eternity. No worries no cares as Jesus is always there. Valentine

thank you ^^
This poem really spreads a good message, and it is to simply have fun in life! People get so tied down with stress that they forget to have fun and take some risks. Sometimes all you need is a little push from the right person and your life could completely turn around for the better. And even if the person who helped change it for you is gone, the end result still remains. A good reminder that we only get one life to live, and each should be lived differently than the one before. A great write :)

"Freedom is found only in the mind". Okay, favorite line here, and here comes out the psych student in me lol. Is there such thing as freedom?

This poem is like pumping iron or doing curls, sparking the energy level and letting you know who is in charge of Freedom and where to find it.
