In a little over a week, we here in the U.S. we will celebrate Independence Day.

Here's the challenge: Write a poem about freedom and post it in any forum you choose but the Holiday Cheer Forum is open now!!. It doesn't have to be about our country's fight for freedom. I can be about any kind of freedom!

I look forward to reading them!

Here's a quick example:

I am a child of the sixties
we marched for civil rights
we loved to chant about freedom
never backed down from freedom fights.

Now, I gaze out from my prison bars
wondering why this was done to me
Marching for what I believe is right
chanting to allow men to be free.

You can imprison my body
but my mind is mine to control
you can never bind my heart
nor ever seize my soul.

Freedom to love, to breath, to live
freedom from otherís scorn
freedom, not given, but
just from being born.
