"Word Prompts Help Creativity ~ Week 29" Response: Founding Father's; Freedom = One's Thoughts; & Living in Freedom

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.

Founding Father's

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

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.

I don't imagine our founding fathers would like our world very much.

I'm still glad I grew up here though.

Have a great weekend.

Bredz, All of the poems were enjoyable to read. This is an excellent response to the word prompt, "Freedom." Freedom is God's greatest gift to mankind, and we should stay grateful for it at all times.

Blessings to you!!

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on September 10, 2021:

We are lucky to live in "the home of the brave, and land of the free." As Bill mentioned, some freedoms are being politically tested these days. I wonder what our founding fathers would think of current day politics?

Thank you.

That acrostic poem was a bit of a struggle, but I finally found the words.

I'm glad you enjoyed the videos. I try hard to match them.

Take care.

Our muse seems to be fickle when we try to rush it.

Relax and wait.

It will come out of the blue.

Have a great day.

Well done! This is a word prompt which drives me nuts in today's political climate, but well done nonetheless.

Wonderful poems Brenda.Each of the poems right from the fundamental rights stipulated by the founding fathers to living in freedom dwell on interesting facets of it. Freedom is absolutely non-negotiable and there are no questions about it. Thanks for sharing.
