Freedom on the Wind

Dec 4th 2010 at 9:03 PM

Freedom on the Wind Publish Date: 03/21/2010 I walked in a lush green meadow,
With the wind whipping through my hair.
I decided that I would lie to see
What it felt like to be free as the wind.

So I sent a tiny piece of my consciousness
Up to soar with the wind on its journeys.
I saw things wondrous in their beauty
And things terrifying in their intensity.
But most of all, I saw that upon the wind 
I was not free at all.
I was the wind's prisoner;
At its mercy as it tossed me to and fro --
Not capable of steering my course
When it threatened to dash me to pieces;
Not free to slow down in enjoyment of the small things.

When in the midst of the wind,
Only the wind roars out in its freedom.
I prefer just to walk in the wind,
Knowing that I guide my destiny
And only I am my master!

That, for me, is the essence of true Freedom.
For wherever I go, it is always a part of me.

You are VERY welcome, and I am SO glad you enjoyed it! That;s why I decided to start putting my pieces in here - to share with others for enjoyment - or self-understanding - or just as food for thought. Sometimes we need a little "something" to get the old wheels a-turning, or to turn us in a more positive direction.
