2012 Poetry Corner #2 : Freedom

There is a peace in being free
A stillness I have never known
The opportunity to be
Still, silent, aware

There is confusion in being free
So much I do know know
This isn't where I thought I'd be
Old, tired, alone

There is a grief in being free
My soul feels battered and bruised
But loss brings opportunity
Slow, sure, divine

There is a relief in being free
I can chose my own way
What I do is up to me
Whims, promptings, choice

There is stability in being free
For my schedule is almost my own
What the future holds, I cannot see
Change, clarity, being

So soon I will be free
And I will own what's left
May I move on and clearly see
Joy, possibility, love
