Free Poem

Heather S., Paradise, CA By TheHerbArtist, Paradise, CA

I am free like a blue jay
Free to fly and be heard
To soar and be vibrant
So brilliant and spontaneous
A bird that can fly
Maybe not physically,
but my mind sure takes a trip
Free to dream
Dream of flowers with the grandest hue of blue
That'll never rot or wither away
I'm free like careless love
Butterfly kisses
Silent looks
Or two blue jays chasing each other
Playing tag in the oak tree
I'd rather be free, then swallowed whole by the emptiness of confinement
The tortures of isolation
Not knowing
The fresh cucumber scent of grass
The touch of a flower blooming in May
Or the sound of a baby's laugh, so gentle and sweet
No, I'd much rather be free than locked away
