What is like to be free?
To have a soul that belonged to none and everyone
To be anything and everything that one wants to be
Where it is that one can find the meaning of being free?
To have the shades black and white
And yet possess the lure of a rainbow
To play against a grey background
And still be an artist to whom colors mean all
To paint on a canvas over and over again
And with every stroke the colors burst
To be dashed and scattered like twinkling stars in a night sky
But yet be as intact as a moon in a silvery night
To be burning as the flame on the sun
And soar as high as an eagle against an emerald sky
To rid the existence of every onus possible
What does being free really mean?
Is it living or learning? Or to live within it and learn
To be a white dove in the war between minds
Or be a warrior on a never ending journey through time
Am I free or do I appear to be?
Am I betraying others or deceiving me?
Caught in the mental war or am I to flee?
To look at things in the light or to look in the darkness
Does shade really matter s when it comes to being free?
To have everything and lose it all
To belong to none who belongs to everyone
To be both bedazzled and dizzied by the concept
Is this what being free is like?
Am I a slave or am I free?
The idea of freedom being so vague and vivid to me
