What Does Freedom mean to you?
freedom is a single spark, cleaving the bloody dark
freedom is a hand to hold, standing strong standing bold
freedom is healing in the pain, wounds washed clean by rain
freedom is awakened deep, a hope that hearts do keep
freedom is held in the soul, while bells of mourning toll
freedom is ever strong and true, when evil demands its due
freedom is the eyes of a child, fairy tale optimism running wild
freedom is chasing a dream, second chances are redeemed
freedom is making a choice, to give the hurting their voice

This gave me chills… “freedom is held in the soul, while bells of mourning toll”
Lovely pen, poet!
Thanks Kellie! This one was emotional to write that is for sure.
Love this. Sums up the beauty and desperation of freedom.
I agree Angelia, there is often a desperation of freedom! Thanks for stopping by!
You amaze me love, I am always awed by you! xoxoxo
Nice! The words embody what freedom means to many I think.
Thank you Colline!
I know I am behind but linked this post on catnip. You should get a pingback.
“Second chances are redeemed”–oh, how that speaks to me today!! I am waiting and watching to see what more God will redeem in my life–very exciting stuff! God bless you and your family–love, sis Caddo
