Freedom

Freedom

A Poem by Princ3ss_26
"

Not allowed to be yourself because of how family and society views the individual.

"

Throughout the years FREEDOM has yet to be achieved.

You fight for it in so many ways

Talking about, acting upon it, looking for ways to reach that goal.


But there are obstacles.

Plenty in fact.

With all sorts of people and even worse, yourself.


I yearn for a moment, a single moment where I can breathe in the air

and say, "YES, I'm free to do as I please."

To not be judged by actions and be looked and considered as equal.


Is it because I am a woman that FREEDOM cannot be obtained?

It can't be for that reason.

I've scratched my head and have thought about every possible scenario but I am not FREE


Where is the dotted line where I sign and say I AM INDEPENDENT

FREE to do what I want, when I want, as I want?

False dreams I suppose.


FREEDOM, comes with a great price I see.

Now I know my freedom won't exist until I stop existing.

I rather get my wings.

Great description of the endless battle between ourselves and society.
Though one should never stop questioning authority, true freedom is achieved when one is at peace with oneself.
You are a woman, and you are free. Always keep a pure mind and you will have clarity

Beautiful words in this poem... I love it! You are absolutely right... we truly aren't free. It's less crazy I would say than other places but definitely not as free as we wish. Everything we do in life is judged every choice we make is critiqued. I love your final stanza "FREEDOM, comes with a great price I see.
Now I know my freedom won't exist until I stop existing.I rather get my wings." Awesome work

GOOD!!! :)
Thank you for your review. I truly appreciate the feedback. This is an issue that many deal with and it is barely spoken of. I can say that my generation has a certain way of looking into out futures and how we want it to be. Yes our parents struggled we will have our own to work through but not accepting us as we are is the biggest crime. We are in the 21st century not the 10th. Thanks again.

A deep piece rooted in our cultural biases which often infringe upon our rightful freedoms. You write this perfectly. I would suggest that the only way we truly lose our freedom is when we give into outdated societal norms generally allowed to stew over centuries because of religious, political, racial and gender-based ideals.
