Poem: "Free Choice"

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

Poem Summary

Free choice is a poem about loosening the reins in a relationship. It helps temptation to slide away when there is no pressure.

Each individual wants to be understood. He wants to be loved. There is a paradise waiting to be discovered beneath the layers.

Love can flourish if given the chance.

Free Choice

Loose reins,

free choice,

with clear minds

temptation slides away.


Each unique personality

bursting to be understood,

paradise waiting

beneath the layers.


Love flourishes,

reflecting an aura

like the colors of a rainbow.

Dora,

Thank you.

I do think it can bring out the best in both people.

Take care & keep smiling.

Lovely. I especially like the lines in the second verse. Such a situation may result in one person bringing out the best of the other.

Peggy,

You are right. Trust is an important issue.

You need to know the person can be trusted & then there is no problem with freedom...but you need to guard your heart.

Have a great day.

Trust is such an important part of any relationship, and with it comes freedom.

Liz Westwood from UK on October 29, 2020:

This is a well thought out and inspirational poem. I wonder how many relationships falter and are stifled due to an overbearing and controlling partner.

Lorna Lamon on October 29, 2020:

This poem reminds me of an old saying I once heard - 'If you let someone go and they return to you, they will be yours forever, however, if they don't return, they were never yours in the first place. Another thought provoking write Brenda.

Bill,

I am happy you have found someone so wonderful to share time with in this life.

She sounds amazing!

Mistakes...I think we all nake them.

Have a great day!

Indeed!

I think I've made every mistake possible in relationships, but thankfully I learned from all of them. My reward is my wife. :)
