Poem: Finally Free

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Summary of Poem

Finally free is a poem about how she feels even after years of torment were already behind her. Since the devil called him home she has found a new lease on life. There are no more worries about who is watching her back. She can relax and finally touch the rainbow. She can have anything she dreams.

"Finally Free"

No need to look over her shoulder in fear,
no more worries about who might be watching her back,
for the devil has finally come
to take him back.

Her soul can relax,
no more constant turmoil
lingering in her mind,
the haunting is over.

She can touch a rainbow
in the clear blue sky,
grab a falling star
when the nighttime falls,
making all her dreams come true.

Kyler,

Thank you so much for your wonderful & touching comment.

Have a great day!

The sweet release into the freedom that we crave is something we all dream for, but one all too uncommon it would seem. When there are no rainbows and falling stars, at least we can pretend there are, together! However, for her to find that happiness on her own, that is a profound step toward satisfaction and greatness!

I love the depth within your poems, Brenda!

Lora,

Thank you.

I appreciate your visit.

It is a very tragic topic to discuss, but the feeling of elation one feels is worth it.

Take care.

Lora Hollings on June 10, 2020:

Such a powerful poem on the tragedy of abuse which happens in so many homes and includes all socioeconomic classes. It is so sad that this pandemic has caused this number to increase and so many people feel that they cannot escape their situations. But there is help and they just need to reach out. And when they do, as your poem so beautifully expresses, a world that they didn't know before suddenly appears with newfound freedom. So inspiring!

There has been an increase in domestic violence since the lockdown began and your poem highlights how a victim must feel when this daily threat has gone forever. These words give a voice to those who have suffered and are still suffering. Powerful words Brenda.

Just because the devil calls him home, the woman feels free, can relax and make all her dreams come true. Great! Double cheers for the woman. Thank you, Brenda, for sharing this poem, which I simply loved.
