Broken Liberty (with audio)

 

 

Broken Liberty

Bell of Liberty:

Cracked.

Broken.

A relic.

A requiem of freedom

of what we used to ring.

Have we forsaken the poor?

Have we built too many walls

without doors?

Have we forgotten

all humans

deserve

to be free?

Ring, bell, ring.

Awaken.

I am broken and I still sing.

  1. This is so powerful “cracked” “broken” “walls with no doors”
    I will stop here because my opinion in this liberty is not so appealing
    Beautiful poem and so powerful 👌👌❤️

  2. I like the tackling of more serious issues, showing your wider embracing of care and compassion. The Liberty Bell analogy is a good introduction. I hope you will come back to issues like this in the future. 🙂 🙂

    1. Thank you! I hope to do just that. I think the trick/struggle is finding the right balance that doesn’t offend someone else’s beliefs, but rather causes them to pause and think about how things could be different–possibly even better–if they question those beliefs and what they’ve been told to believe. Thank you for reading and your comment. 🙂 🙂
