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

Article Summary

"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.

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

without interference

or brutality

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.
