The Gift (For Henry Dumas And Ms. S. Truth) - Poem by D. A. Fitch

"Freedom" can not be given by masters, parents, or gurus
Freedom can only always be claimed of my spirit, my soul,
From within. . . Even if I tried to give freedom, part of owning my reality to my
Friends. . . This could not be given
To newcomers or oldtimers. . . The freedom to be fully who I am is a fire (energy lite)
That burns within and guides of my spirit. . .
And rests in my soul. . . Not one that can be given or granted by pseudo
Authority, sponsors, or friends. . .
