Liberty



Freedom is precious

Abusing our privileges

Restricts its power

I really enjoyed this poem, and I’m looking forward to reading more of your pieces. I'm kind of new on here and it would be an honor if you can review my 4 new recent poems. (The world is ours, Nostalgia, Paradise, and You)

Thank you and Keep up the Good work!

Just read the reviews. ( Mr X has got you wonderful haiku absolutely wrong!) I agree with the others, it is an apt and clever haiku. The abuse of privileges certainly makes a mockery of freedom. I am sure there are many who could benefit by reading this! Nicely done.

Restrict is power. I don't think so. Restrict is sign of weakness and fear. Maybe you should also say what's are our priveleges .

Thank you for your kind review - bless :-)
How should we live? Should we aim for happiness or knowledge? For virtue or the creation of beautiful objects? Can we justify living in opulence while somewhere else people are starving? Which politician is an example on ethics or morality? Your words made me think. Who is humble and thankful for the freedom we have? Not easy to answer.

I'm voting for you next time round. All of them could do with getting this tattoo'd on their hands, to remind them who they are working for.

Thanks for your kind review!
A strong message and one appropriate in the USA, too! Well said, and I like the image as much as the poem (compliment to both). I thought of our lady liberty when I saw the photograph. I like the open bird cage much better than the torch, especially for this time.
