A FRIDAY POEM FROM RHYTHMS AND CYCLES – “Love and Freedom”

July 4, 2014 Leave a comment

The cyclic nature of ¬†this poem is that I posted it last year around this holiday; what goes around comes around! But I read this today from my journal and it still strikes a chord. And it still seems appropriate for the 4th of July. Have a great day today! Remember, we are only as independent as we believe we are. And, as I said last year: “Love the one you’re with!”

Love and Freedom

Freedom to Love is everything.
When we love we are free.
When we are free we can love.
Choice is everything.

Love is not always a choice.
Some are not free to choose.
Freedom is a matter of mind.
Love is a matter of heart.

Others believe they control minds.
There is no control of hearts.
When we are free in our hearts
No one controls Love in our minds.
