Freedom
By Lynn Gould

 

Freedom is within you see
Look within to be set free!

Do simple things to make you whole
Transform you mind, heal your soul.

YOU SAY,

“I MUST GET THERE,
I MUST GET THERE,
I MUST GET THERE!
So why do I feel
Such DESPAIR?”

It’s in your stance,
It’s in your face
You RACE and RACE
And RACE and RACE.

Do simple things
Transform your soul,
To make you truly
Truly whole.

Plant a bulb!
Climb a tree!
It doesn’t matter
If you scrape
your knee!

Just do simple things,
Transform your soul
To make you truly, truly
WHOLE!
