The Freedom Of The Moon

Posted on Updated on

I’ve tried the new moon tilted in the air
Above a hazy tree-and-farmhouse cluster
As you might try a jewel in your hair.
I’ve tried it fine with little breadth of luster,
Alone, or in one ornament combining
With one first-water start almost shining.

I put it shining anywhere I please.
By walking slowly on some evening later,
I’ve pulled it from a crate of crooked trees,
And brought it over glossy water, greater,
And dropped it in, and seen the image wallow,
The color run, all sorts of wonder follow.

Freedom

Posted on Updated on

The Freedom
To have my own mind, without others trying to influence me.
The Freedom
To be loved, and not hurt.
The Freedom
To be accepted, and understood.
The Freedom
To make mistakes, and not be judged.
The Freedom
To walk with my head held high, and confidence without others trying to tear me down.
The Freedom
To be me

Freedom

Posted on Updated on

Freedom is like a rose with fragrance
It is the word with complete balance
Freedom tree bears fruit of tolerance
Freedom is killed by the fool’s igrorance,

Long live freedom on this green Kingdom

I know freedom is the instinct of nature,
Freedom makes humble- peaceful future,
Never use freedom as an arrow of hatred,
Those who used, they made earth only red,

Long live freedom on this green Kingdom
