   freedom -

echoes

across mountains and valleys

and prairies and fields

a ghost-like wind

whispering reminders of past

suffering



freedom -

rolls off the lips of youth

easily

little thought is given

to those whose

freedom was

only a dream



freedom -

is supposed to ring from every steeple

and every doorway

but many are too afraid

instead they play deaf and dumb

and only echoes of ignorance can be heard

in the empty doorways



freedom -

should rejoice and be exalted



hiding her face in shame

only further complicates the unending

search

for her

true

inner

self
