What is freedom?
No rules, no rhyme
No responsibilities and no meaning…
Or swimming like a fish
Through the contrary currents of life?
Or simply freedom to choose
A good attitude?

    A very good question. On ewe should all ponder more than we do. I wonder if freedom should be freed from the word “of” that often follows it?
    Nice writing.

      There does seem to be endless depth to this simple word – it is almost a contradiction in terms, and I certainly liked playing with that. Thanks for reading

    freedom is relative when it comes to regulations or laws, yet, freedom of speech, life, and religion are handsome to enjoy…

    What a great cascading
    Poem, with its deepening
    And deepening
    In that way also giving
    The Answer…!

    A deep and cleverly written piece , under its deceptive simplicity…

    freedom is something to express
    something that no one should suppress
    its the thought behind ones passion
    the minds thoughts and un- ending ration

    lol just wanted to play some verses haha

    Freedom is so often misused to justify bad choices, it is often forgotten it is given so that one can choose to be better. 🙂 Thanks for your poem.
