Universal Freedom Is......

Freedom from hunger and freedom from pain
freedom from loss and so freedom from gain.
Freedom to give and freedom to share
freedom from want and that of despair.

Freedom to think and freedom to know
freedom to achieve and freedom to grow.
Freedom from bondage and freedom of liberation
freedom from ignorance and any unknown situation.

Freedom to come and freedom to leave
freedom to stay and freedom to conceive.
Freedom from struggle and freedom of ease
freedom to enjoy and the capacity to please.

Freedom from failure and freedom of success
freedom from denial and freedom of access.
Freedom from illusion and freedom of reality
freedom to become what we are in actuality.

Freedom to live and freedom to die
freedom to laugh and freedom to cry.
Freedom to speak and freedom to listen
freedom to act based on a wise decision.

Freedom from hate and freedom of love
freedom of below and freedom of above.
Freedom of the past and freedom of the present
freedom of the future and what it can represent.

Freedom from war and freedom of peace
freedom to begin and freedom to cease.
Freedom from sickness and freedom of health
freedom from poverty and mishandled wealth.

Freedom from wrong and freedom being right
freedom of the day and freedom of the night.
Freedom to choose and freedom to reject
freedom to imagine what there is to expect.

Freedom from lust and freedom from greed
freedom from anger and freedom from breed.
Freedom from jealousy and freedom from pride
freedom from within and freedom from outside.
Freedom of always not having anything to hide.

Freedom from space and also freedom from time
freedom from attachment and freedom from crime
Freedom to work and freedom to play
freedom to believe and freedom to pray.
Freedom to experience a rebirth someday.

Freedom from the body and freedom from the mind
freedom from the ego and freedom from being blind.
Freedom of transcendence being of the spiritual kind.

Universal freedom is eternal and infinite bliss
we should all therefore be able to realise this.

    Is this poetry? Why do you bogus fellow pollute the site...waste of space! Every stanza is unevenly articulated affecting the flow! No rhymes and rhthm! Why the word freedom so many times? Are your readers donkeys! Better stop writing!

    You should learn to write proper English and grammar before anyone can take anything you write seriously Mr Swain
    because it appears that with most of what you write and offer here one can notice that there's nothing much to gain.

    freedom is somthng we dream. what i believe is freedom is an illusion in mind. At one's death one achieve's his freedom from all I very humbly say.

    Let the word 'freedom' be given now freedom
    It is being imprisoned in every sentence
    Too much love also is an enemy to liberty
    The poet's vocabulary is extraordinary
    Then why he restricts his brain's power?
    Proper musing will make this one great
    We cannot afford to repeat a word
    Beyond the limit as it freezes charm
    If we eat only curd rice daily as a routine
    Our tongue will beg us for a fine change
    I want the poet to employ his dexterity
    To use various words in his poems
    In a gist, the poem is damn good
    Only request is to avoid repetition.

    I totally agree with these strong words that jump out at me as I read. Every man and woman should be free. We fight and die for freedom.
