A Discourse on Freedom


you questioned my sense of freedom
it's out of the ordinary
you say you are free
you followed the rules
you dress and groom as
normal people do
your life is orderly
you follow the dictates of
society
that makes you free

my hair is messed up
my nails dirty
you think that is a disorder
not of the usual norm
if i preferred my flip flops
over your Ferragamo
would you consider me
an outcast because i'm
not like you

if you have to act and do
as others do
if you have to conform
because it is expected of you
do you honestly feel
that you are free?

as for me
I am free
when i feel free

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
