Finding Freedom, Poetry


A little #writing this afternoon.


I’ve sailed through storms to the end of this world
I’ve fought battles with both heart and sword
My arms have stretched outward to an empty sky
Yet my greatest regret was believing sweet lies.

I’ve flown high with eagles far above
I’ve laid low in the strongest arms of love
I’ve swam deep in oceans luring with siren’s song
Yet the greatest price given was believing I was wrong.

I’ve walked along beaches as calm and smooth as glass
I’ve stood strong, allowing adventure to pass
I’ve followed the wind as a free wild flower
Yet my greatest regret was when I willingly surrendered all my power.
