I'm a Hippie

Lost in This Age

I am a hippie

It is not about an era

It's not about long hair

Or style of apparel

It's not about taking psychedelics

Those definitions are wrong

I am a hippie

Because I am lost 

And out of place

Lost in an age

Of greed and vanity

Lost in a time 

Out of place with my spirit

I am a free spirit

A flower child

A wandering nomad

Both the artist and the muse

Always searching

For joy and beauty

In an ugly world that's full of sadness

I wear flowers in my hair

Not as a fashion statement

But as a political statement

I believe in peace

Not war

I believe in love

Not hate

I believe in wisdom

And integrity

And truth

And compassion

And honour

And if those beliefs make me a hippie

Then I will wear the label with pride

I am proud to be counted among

Those who think for themselves

Those who strive every day

To make this world a better place

I like to write, if that makes me a writer, then rock on!

I started writing as a child because I ran out of stuff to read. So, I only write stuff that I like. If you like it too, awesome! Enjoy! ^_^
