    James, may I just say how much I enjoy your poems.
    The lyricism, the music of the mind, the breadth of the mind...OK that's enough for one email...hope you go on writing - in and out of love!

    Slightly enviously,
    Michael

Freedom's Theme

What is the theme of freedom?
Life,
Love,
Happiness,
Contentment.
Is this so?
Can freedom be these,
Our best,
The good things in life?

Or is freedom more?
Is freedom the blood with which it is bought?
Is freedom the evils which our men have suffered
To bring it to us?

Freedom's theme,
Sung through the ages,
Is sacrifice,
And pain,
For happiness dearly bought.

Freedom's theme
Is a hymn of praise
To the God who smiled on us,
And gave us America.

Freedom's theme
Is life, earned by death.
It is...

The End

This is it, girl-
the end.
Of all you ever hoped to have with me,
Of all I ever thought I’d have with you,
Of all that there would be to have.
Give up, stop trying, because-
maybe because I’m afraid of what might happen,
If I decide to try again,
Maybe I worry about what people will say, or think,
