As I slowly speak out loud
to taste  the sense within
Of this simple word
As freedom

How comes
it overwhelmed me
With melancholy,
do I still taste fragrance
of blood

Why  do I still hear the cry
Of warriors from elsewhere
Fighting for their rights
Giving their lives
For Freedom

Right of every humans being
But many aren’t allowed
To taste a fragrance
Of this costly word
Like freedom

A small simple word
But contains so much more
More than history ever told
'cause it's a part of every soul

So please cherish always
the freedom from within
'cause without doing that
you can't stand for

A very patriotic piece. I really enjoyed this poem Charisma. It put me in the spirit of the 4th of July. Very wonderful indeed.

I was born myself, raised myself, and will continue to be myself. The world will just have to adjust.

I'm in love with my shadow
I admire it daily

I think this needs to be put back on top of the list.. freedom rings loud in this piece.  I enjoyed reading this very much.

Live today as if it's your last.  Love today as if it's your first.   Lisa
