What Is Freedom?



Birds with freedom to fly
billowing clouds floating in the sky
water forming rapids as it rushes by
everything’s free except you and I.

But what is freedom?
No laws, rules, expectations of others
no wants, unlimited money
would this make us free?

No, freedom comes from within
where no one else can go.
We are free only when we know
love and serenity
compassion and justice
only then can we be free.
