I Want To Be Free


I want to be free,
Like the breeze in the trees,
Shaking the leaves,
Chasing honey bees.

I want to be free,
Like the shining stars.
Shining down on the planets,
Like Venus and Mars.

I want to be free,
Like the fireflies.
Flying in a clearing,
Lighting up the skies.

I want to be free,
Like the setting sun.
Leaving in grand splendor,
When the day is done.
