True Freedom


I've heard stories of such a place?
People live, free from fear,
Meeting all, with warm embrace,
No rumors, in what we hear.

Tend others needs, endlessly,
Each new day without a care,
Never a turn toward jealousy,
Instead always, an equal share.

If there was, a need for law,
Everyone, would surely abide,
Written for the good of all,
Most naturally would coincide.

No one to tell us what to do,
As if we didn’t know by now,
A specialized point of view,
Inside each one, to endow.

Live within, each new breath,
One on one, with nature,
Worry nothing about death,
The next moment, to capture.

Perhaps it’s only in my mind,
As I long, to visit often,
Leaving reality far behind,
Childish dreams; to soften.
