A Soul Released From Prison- a Response to Word Prompt ~ Week 29

Misbah loves writing poetry. She says poetry is what makes her heart feels warm and light.

In general, we define freedom as the ability or right to act, speak, or think as one wants without hindrance or restriction, as well as the absence of a dictatorial government. But what about a soul that is imprisoned? Can a soul be imprisoned? What exactly is the soul's freedom? Is there anything like Soul Freedom?

Yes, there is. Freedom of the Soul is a Divine gift that teaches us how to connect ourselves to nurture. How to seek beauty in little things. How to appreciate things. How to live a life full of bliss and joy. This is a precious friendship we all should have in order to live a more motivated and purposeful life.

Needless to say, the poem was inspired by my dear friend and lovely co-author Brenda Arledge. So the word prompt for this week, week-29, is "Freedom." I hope everyone will enjoy it.

“Let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love. It will not lead you astray.”

— -- Rumi

A Soul Released From Prison

On the gloomy, dark night,

While laying on the ground,

Light entered the heart,

To seal deep wounds.


The night turned into day,

Oh my God! The sun so bright,

Kissed my cheeks, the sunlight,

Bringing in hope, lips smiled.


A new different world of Peace,

Having no conflicts, no fights.

Bliss and Happiness now my friends,

I am holding their hand very tight


A ray of hope turned in

Dusk turned into Dawn,

Bringing music into Life

To the new world unknown.


The soul is now free, Free from prison.

Enjoying the independence of its freedom!!



“Just living is not enough. One must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower.”
