Freedom’s Child

Run child,
Dance child,
Sing child—
Break loose from the constraints
You have embraced—
Let them fall away
And sound the liberty bell.
Can you see now?
Have you awoken
To your freedom yet?
Feel the wind in your hair,
The sun warming your face,
The soft, velvet grass
As you recline in this space
And watch the clouds go by—
Hear the chatter of birds
And the movement of leaves
And please understand that
You’re living, you’re breathing—
You’re truly, unstoppably,
And supernaturally…
