Freedom

Freedom — an eagle
Soaring above the mountains
In the summer sky,
Alert, content, and on guard
For hidden snares and cages

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream.

On the breezes of the sky,
And you ask “What if I fall?”
Oh but my darling,
What if you fly?”
