Freedom

Take poetry off the page,

Let it fly free,

Attach to fences and trees,

Flutter in the wind of change.

 

Let poetry swirl

In the face of adversity,

Be scrawled on Billboards,

Help to build bridges.

 

Spit out the phrases

That ease an aching heart.

Offers comfort and concern,

To those who need it.

 

Extend a help-line

To the disenchanted.

To those on the wayside,

Or, in the gutter.

 

Let poetry catch

In a breath, a stride,

Break into a run…

Become unstoppable.

 

Poetry has wings,

The voice of an Angel.

Ascending, avenging

Embodying our spirit
