              Freedom

Comprehension is a toothed saw.
That cuts through the ignorance door.
But its only a simple tool.
Bought and used by many a fool.

It is a wondrous amalgam,
That can show a way to Edam.
But few people follow its worth,
To the open path of rebirth.

Books are but a knock on the door,
It gives you a route and nothing more.
It is an element of bare.
It is an factor of care.

It is a look, a touch, a view,
It is most ancient, nothing new.
It's a gathering of your plumb,
It is the whisper of freedom.

It's not the vital of what is known,
But the acceptance of the unknown.

I loved your poem...especially this part..."It's not the vital of what is known,
But the acceptance of the unknown."

The title grabbed me...that word has always had great meaning to me...

Without freedom...there is no real living...

thanks again for a wonderful read...



 Freedom of expression is the watch word...

I agree, Amen Sy, you said this oh so well!

 Just be glad I'm not your child! *evil grin*

There are awlways unkown
Must read the signs there shown
You put a spot towards the goal
Nice poem with so much soul



 The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.
