Freedom


All I want is freedom
Is that too much to ask
All I want is freedom
To forget everything in my past
All I want is freedom
To take away all the tears and the pain
All I want is freedom
To never feel that way again
All I want is freedom
To love you my own way
All I want is freedom
To make all my fears go away
All I want is freedom
To say “I love you”
All I want is freedom
To hear you say “I love you too”

    Freedom is in this refraining poem, of perfect structure and good appearance. It is a poetic method of explaining the unexplainable. Freedom is like a goodness of strength, a desire in men and women, and so needed that the phrase is involved repetitively, to ingrain and let memory gain you a form of freedom or liberty. It is up to you to be your freedom, it could even be with your loved ones. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
