eluding long his captors
and the slavery of the plow
the stallion knows no master
his head will never bow

THE LAND OF THE FREE AND THE HOME OF THE BRAVE —————————————————————————————————————————————-A MESSAGE FOR AMERICA

by thereluctantpoet

BY CHARLES ROBERT LINDHOLM 

How free are the free
How brave are the brave
In America today? 

Have we learned our lessons
From the past
Or are we doomed
To repeat our errors, again?

CALL ME CRAZY

By Charles Robert Lindholm

 

You think I’m crazy
and maybe I am to you
because I don’t believe the same
or do the things you do

Freedom

by Tanya

As I sink into the
very thought
of flying high…

As if a pull of the gravity,
yet a freefall 
from the sky…

CAGED

Barbed walls
To which i cling..
Desperate calls
Flapping my wings..

Cant you see
My desire to fly?
I so wish to flee
In An open sky..

Liberty

by Angela Umphers Rueger

Liberty.
It’s not what I expected it to be.
For somehow I don’t really feel quite free.

Iron, Undress and Grow in the Garden With Me

by A. Marie

Iron of dress, without meadowsweet tenderness,
Give up your ghost to me now, and we shall all bow down weeping.

Close to the creeping, I secure my hat,
Pick up my boots and walk
To the lavender-times, when I lived by my nose,
When I touched my crown into each rose and
Loved red.

Where the Wind goes, so I shall go.

by A. Marie

Where the wind goes
So I will go.

If Harmatten calls,
So I depart. The Sahara a cradle so I shall lay.

Should the Westerly
Steal me outright, and collide me with
A forest, a field, a turbine blade

The Secrets Within

by Venkat

Freedom, an open sky
Of layers of walls, scaled
Slippery and rigid
Each wall, made of freedom

Love, a soft bed
By needles of grass, touched
Pricking and sensitive
Each blade, made of love

A Walk in the Grass

Taking each days blessings as entitlements oblivious to the joy they bring each moment of every day resorts to living life behind murky lenses unable to find your way through the mazes created by our unwillingness  to take off the glasses of selfishness.

Lush green grass just out of reach through prison bars so bare.

Wishing to feel freedom from  my soul’s despair.

Crippled by life’s circumstance much like those prison bars,

Keeping those who wish to walk held back by their scars.

Of conical homes
We call life

We slide upon
By gentle breeze of reason
Towards each other

Knowing the possible sacrifice causing fearful questions deep inside.

Yet still defending freedom without regard to cost,

Freedom

by MC Clark

 

A crack zigzags across the old sidewalk.
The summer sun’s fiery fingers prod inside
And wrench apart the hot concrete,
Exposing a tiny sliver of earth that for years untold
Has known only crushing pain and darkness.

Thought is a Bird

In these hands
Yet
Wings flapping

Thought is a bird
With one home
Yet
Seldom on same branch

When I awoke to the sounds of thunder,

I was a babe in arms, swaddled under

the care of loving parents, family,

those that would help determine life to me.

Till the beams I held

Freedom

by Jem Croucher

 

I have many chanced by meetings
When walking Sussex Weald
But there’s little interaction
with rabbits in a field
I have no problem here of course
It’s nice to see them there
Minding their own business
without concern or care
