Freedom

Freedom
by Ted L Glines

Such an odd thing - ill defined
a vision seen by the blind
this fantasy called freedom
for the me-dom and the thee-dom

we fight for it - die for it
write poems that sing and cry for it
and only a precious few
have the freedom to go and do
anything they please
while most are on their knees

struggling toward survival
praying for miracle revival
drowning in poor-me-dom
in the prison of our freedom

beyond our life - beyond all this
we shall finally know the bliss
shucking off our life's debris
when we finally fly free.

Little Freedoms

Some freedoms will be late in coming
Not this afternoon nor tonight
Not ever hurried through resolute effort
Nor through exaction, nor imposition

We all cherish our little freedoms
Unfettered, not hemmed down
By strangers from ourselves
Proudly we stand foursquare on this

Forces abound around us
Other people's strong assertions
You cannot do this nor that
Why not, we shout back lamely

Freedoms are urgent
They are burgeoning forces
Throbbing in the heart
Wanting out from confinement

Easy to say
I want my freedoms
Whoa! hold it, keep your cool
It comes on its own accord

  199.     

Women see they aren’t free

Women fail to assert the freedom in sex
That the pioneers have won for them.
Though they are certainly aware
That it is only their choice
That keeps this freedom from them,
They are still afraid of using it.
Most likely their daughters too follow suit
As these women would not advocate to them
The freedom they feared to employ for themselves
And the freedom their mothers were deprived of.
Women take care of each other that they aren’t free.

Freedom

As freedom fades
to twilight dim
and darkness filters in
Hopes fall
Like withered leaves
On droughted lands
Of deep despair
But we ourselves
Are here
Brought
Not blown
By fate and resolve
To stand before the storm
uncolored by fear
unshaken by threat
We Stand
For freedom


Freedom is taken
Not given
Cry freedom!
