For POETS UNITED ~ Midweek Motif ~ Freedom ~ In Freedom There is Fear ~



In Freedom There is Fear
When a close and dear 
one, is no more,

In Freedom there is blood
When All you made in life
Is washed away in flood;

In freedom there is sacrifice
When all you claim and own
Is taken away without a price;

In freedom there is liberty
For many just a statue
 fights, no rights, nor equality;

In Freedom there are letters
promises and false hopes
 soon you are in iron fetters;

In Freedom I was born
I never saw my land
I long for its beauty
In dewdrops shining
In the morn;

In Freedom there is a gift 
treasure not and you find
it floating by and adrift;

In Freedom there is ease
calm and harmony, hold
 it strong for eternal peace.

  2. You pinpoint the paradoxes in freedom. I will always be grateful for mine though It too comes at a price. The misinformation in the USA guarantees that we know little of what it does in the world. I like the repetition of "In Freedom" that ties this poem together.

  5. I saw a sigh yesterday - "Freedom is Not Free"
    I guess when we take it lightly we risk it's loss.
