Freedom - A Short Poem / Excerpt
I am free!
Free, to travel the world on the wings of your inspiration.
Free to be, free to feel.
Free to leave,
and free to make the choice to return, always.
Several months ago I published The Ring, my longest poem to date. Unsurprisingly, it went through quite a lot of editing. The above poem was originally part of that poem, but @authorofthings gave me the correct piece of advice, that it didn't seem to fit there.
I've saved it, because I felt it more than stands on its own. I spoke before of the urge, that I too suffer from, to keep adding words, when they are not really needed. This poem is short. But it is complete.
Also, The Ring definitely had me drawing inspiration from Rumi's work, and I feel it is most felt in this poem.
