A Freedom Came To Set Me Free - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Freedom came to rescue me,
From tired things I've tried.
With a wall around my pride.
And arrested me to see...
A peace within me deep,
Trying to get outside.

I...
Had not,
Thought about it being my guide.

I...
Had not,
Thought of peace as being my strength inside.

A freedom came to set me free...
From undecision and a vision,
Clouding up around me.

But I...
Had not,
Thought of peace as being my strength inside.

And I...
Had not,
Thought of peace as being my guide.

Freedom came to rescue me,
From tired things I've tried.
With a wall around my pride.
And arrested me to see...
A peace within me deep,
Trying to get outside.

A freedom came to set me free...
From undecision and a vision,
Clouding up around me.

And I...
Had not,
Thought of peace as being my guide.

No I...
Had not,
Thought of peace as being my strength inside.
