Freedom

To speak thoughts

From time to time

 

To not bite back words

All the time 

 

Freedom to sleep at will

No more usual drill

 

Freedom to be just “me”

Inside out sans referee

 

A bit of tug of war, strife

To keep things humming, nice 

 

Free as a soaring kite on frail string

To keep things in proper perspective 

 

Freedom with responsibility

To own, eschew at will

 

Freedom sweet freedom

Tart, bitter sweet- if you will
