'Seeking Freedom' - Poem by Katherine York

Looking at all of the free things in life;
Not in bondage, but given a choice.
Spreading ones wings, to openly soar,
Above all pain...to Heaven's Door.

Falcons soaring...wild and free,
Never owned...just free to be.
Butterflies swarm in colors galore,
Being themselves and nothing more.

Feral animals...owned by no one,
Not chained but free to roam.
Fish in the sea, going no where,
Swimming free...and no one cares.

Free from all...of life's woes,
Happy to travel...where life goes.
No chains...to tie them down,
Free to be in country or town.

Wild things do not belong in a cage;
They destroy souls...bring on rage.
This wild heart...longed to be free,
To be owned, by no one but me.

Take the key...unlock life's door;
Grab the freedom, you long for.
Do not put chains, upon a free soul,
Leave it's heart completely whole.

Love in bondage...when given a choice,
Comes for free...when given a voice.
