FREEDOM

Free born

Quality of life possessed

Free birth

A high and noble lineage

Born upon this rare earth

 

Free soul

A spiritual piece of man

Regardless of how this world began

 

Free heart

The love of my choice

Never shall we be forced apart

 

Free will

Determination to succeed

All your dreams fulfilled

 

Free love

passionate attention one can give

Be proud to share

Be proud to live

 

Free mind

One's intentions, opinions and words

All three above, shall be heard

 

Free thought

A life's collective inspirations

That will continue to be taught

 

Free to read

Absorb the thoughts of others

Be it fact, fiction or creed

 

Free hand

Unrestricted freedom and authority

To express and understand

 

Free living

Our way of life

We freely indulge

And yet are not required to divulge

 

Shout it from the mountain tops

Shout it from the seas

Let the words flow from my lips

We are a country that is free

 

 

 

 

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I dedicate this poem to my son Gabriel Payne, my special "Thank You" to his service in the U.S. Army keeping everyone free!
