FREEDOM?


As a newborn sparrow
Spreads its wings to fly
From captive nest
To open sky...
Slamming to earth,
Distraught go I.

OUCH! this is indeed the price of freedom.

Robert though concise that poem hit hard.
an interesting take on the challenge. Well done.

The things we are willing to do for freedom.  I like this a lot.
