Free from thought
Free from time
Free from consequence
Free from crime

Free from circumstance
Free from fear
Free from sympathy
Free from cheer

Free from thoughts now
Free from strife
May as well be
Free from life

About Helen

I'm drawn to blogging as a way to share ideas and consider what makes us who we are. Whether it's in our working life or our creativity, expression is a means to connect.

  1. Good morning Helen, This is one of those poems where you think the conceit is to free one from issues that surround them but in fact it comes crashing down in the last line.

  2. It takes a whole lot of goings on to let you know you are living.(don’t know the alternative so I’ll take the goings on) nice ending.

  3. Tough price for ultimate freedom. 🙂 Perhaps we should strive to be only as free as we can without infringing upon the freedom of others.
