Freedom

Hamster Wheel

Leaders with their theatrical smiles,
Cloaked eyes and mechanical voice,
Renegades and their muffled noise 
Saying something,
Unveiling something.

Sorry! too busy to look up,
Too busy to rise.

Always something important to do 
In our important fast paced lives ,
So we keep running in circles
Like a hamster running on a hamster wheel,

The Strength You Finally Find

I would rather you didn’t make me your addiction,
I want to be that which gives you life
Not which takes it away in a process of slow death.

Let me be the air that you breathe,
I don’t wish to be the cigarettes that you smoke
To get through a sleepless night. Continue reading “The Strength You Finally Find”

Dancing light of a half eaten moon,
Trapped inside a dirty old bottle,
locked with a tottery bottle cap
Eager to break free from the trap.

And when I gave up all control
All illusions of control,
When I was free falling,

The wind lifted me up
Like a feather, I was swaying in the air,
flowing and swirling with the wind,
flying with the wind.

She Was A Kite Adrift

She was a kite adrift,
She wanted to keep moving,
There was no place
She really wanted to go or be.
Her eyes were searching for something
But what, she couldn’t see.

Flying Inside A Box

Everywhere I look
I see posters telling me
What I want, what I like,
Who I am and who I want to be.
Sometimes I look away,
Sometimes I buy into their story.
They talk about free will
Continue reading “Flying Inside A Box”
