I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.
"Word Prompts Help Creativity ~ Week 29" Response: Founding Father's; Freedom = One's Thoughts; & Living in Freedom" is about our founding Father's writing the Bill of Rights, how one doesn't want to change his line of thinking to set himself free, and the freedom we have in the United States.
I hope you find them enjoyable.
"Toby Keith ~ American Soldier"
Following our founding father’s written advice
Rights given to protect Americans
Establishing a Bill of Rights
Expressing our freedoms
Documented in the Constitution in 1791
Organized inside 12 amendments
Moral standards giving us basic rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
Freedom = One's Thoughts
Freedom is a figment of one’s thoughts,
what he believes to be true
no matter what struggle he faces.
Dead set in his ways,
no determination will change his mind,
as he locks himself behind his line of thinking.
Pressed against a wall,
choices trampled to the ground,
no way of turning back the clock,
isolated in the moment.
Chains pulling tight,
watching freedom sink,
wanting to see the light
but unwilling to budge.
Living in Freedom
The freedom to wake up each morning
to enjoy the life, we’ve chosen
is a wonderful thing indeed.
Not facing fear
as we make our own choices
to earn a living
without forced labor.
Not forgetting the one’s
who valiantly shed blood
to keep this land free
saying prayers to God
to protect their families.
There’s no place else
I’d rather be
than the land of the free
the home of the brave.
