Freedom

Recently I’ve become aware of how much many people both long to be free of a burdensome situation AND are so afraid to take a step toward that freedom.  It takes a lot of courage to opt out of an educational experience, for instance,  that isn’t working for you and jump in to something totally different than anything you’ve ever known.

This awareness inspired the following poem.

Freedom
can sometimes feel
like falling

Disoriented
expansion

There is no need
for Anxiety

You are Simply
Learning

To Fly
