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.”

— – Hans Christian

Misbah

In your introduction you talk about Freedom for one's Soul.

You tell us it is a divine gift that teaches us to see the beauty in little things & appreciate all we have as it connects us to our inner self.

We live a happier life full of joy when we have this motivation.

Your poem, "A Soul Released From Prison" tells us how the light can come into our hearts and turn the gloominess around.

Bringing us hope. Showing us a world of peace.

Freeing us at last.

This is a very touching poem which embraces God's love for us.

He is our guiding light & his love brings us freedom.

Great poetry.

I will post a link in the word prompt article.

Mi Jameela, you more than deserve this tender, delicate loving note that Allah gave you, via an inspired Heart of beauty.

I would not think of looking at Freedom in any other way, except through Moksha (Liberation), and in your own inimitable style, you've done such a marvelous job of this! Bless you. Salaam!

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on September 09, 2021:

An interesting slant on the word challenge. It shows your creative mind. Each piece you write is a glimpse into your heart and soul, and for that I thank you. We may never meet in person, and that is my loss, but I can at least "meet" you through your writings, and I like that person.

Blessings always
