Freedom

Freedom Is…

Being on a patch of calm water in the middle of a stormy sea.

Being calm in the middle of a raging mob.

Yellow in the middle of reds, blues and greens, oranges and pinks.

Being music in the middle of industrial soundscapes.

Seeing God in the middle of political battles and financial crises.

Reading scriptures amongst the throng of atheists and non-believers

Noticing the colour of someone’s eyes in the middle of a bullet-laden action pic

Feeling strong as you open the door to a stranger

Putting in a complaint about troublesome residents

Living and loving and expecting nothing in return

Praying and expecting it to be heard.

Thinking for yourself and not being a part of the herd.
