Time for our fourth (but not final) Two for Tuesday of the month! Pick one prompt or use both … your choice! Write a free poem. Write a not free poem. Remember: These are just matches meant to spark your creativity; you are free to poem wherever you wish. — Robert Lee Brewer, Writer’s Digest
Free. Not free. All I keep thinking, as I consider freedom, is:
Is it possible to be free?
Free of other people’s expectations?
Free from your own judgment of your perceived shortcomings?
Free to do what fills you and avoid what wears you down?
So many self-imposed chains
Easier to submit
than to figure out how
to break loose.
So hard even to see the bonds;
harder still to escape them.
Can you believe enough in freedom
to reach for it?
