Inner freedom

kitesWhen I was young I did think

That freedom was, of growing up a part

It took forever for the idea to sink

That the true sense of freedom lay in the heart…

As a child I envied grown-ups who could

Go anywhere without permission

I had decided that as an adult I would

Do nothing that was not of my volition.

In the naivete of youth I did not realize

Freedom comes with clauses too many

Freedom always exacts its price

Down to every last cent and penny.

Freedom carries with it the baggage

Of responsibility with it always

They come as an all-inclusive package

These two can never part ways..

The burden of responsibility may

Tie you down in shackles again

Therefore at the end of the day

The exhilaration of freedom goes down the drain!

**

The true essence of freedom lies inside 

It is a state for ourselves to discover

By losing attachment to everything outside

We achieve our goal of freedom inner.
