Freedom is the bird that flies
unbound from the shackles of its cage.
Freedom is the wisdom that comes with age.
Freedom is letting go of what no longer serves.
Freedom takes you by the hand while allowing you to grow.
Freedom is the key to a kingdom of peace
where we leave all our worries behind.
Freedom is not seeing the mirror of you through someone else’s eyes.
Accepting yourself
and knowing your worth
that is where freedom lies.

  1. Maggie, this is gorgeous!

    Did you happen to write it for the W3 prompt? If so, please share via Mr. Linky (I can explain how if you don’t know how) so that the other prompt participants can also enjoy this wonderful work.

    Much love,
