When We Are Free

03 Jun

 

When we are free, we pull, prod, flatten, and stretch our imaginations

 When we are free, we dream of endless possibilities

 

When we are free, what others do not observe, we clearly see

          When we are free, we can just be

 

When we are free, in times of tranquility we perceive and embrace the vibrant

          colors of life rhythmically dancing by

 

When we are free, in tumultuous times we are acutely aware of those same colors

          dulling and fading in and out as they march stealthily by

 

When we are free, we trust unconditionally

          When we are free, we can just be

 

When we are free, we smell and feel the nuances of the changing seasons

When we are free, we give freely and freely receive

 

When we are free, there is no fear

          When we are free, we can just be

 

When we are free, with anticipation and expectation we ride bareback the bucking

 bull of life

 

When we are free, we get knocked down; but we get back up and happily we keep

 moving: riding, walking, skipping, sometimes even crawling

 

When we are free, we have deep-belly laughs and brokenhearted cries

          When we are free, we can just be

 

When we are free, we create peace and exude harmony

      When we are free, we tiptoe gingerly through the mazes of other people’s lives

 

When we are free, we speak softly and gently roll up and down life’s slopes

          When we are free, we can just be!

 

When we are free, we love unconditionally

          When we are free, we breathe in and radiate hope

 

When we are free, we run barefoot over the hot coals of life without getting singed

          When we are free, we can just be!
