To be free

It is already a while ago that I participated in Writers Island. Writers Island has gone, Matinee Muse has come and I choose to take the prompt "To be free" and put in into:

To be free
By Marja Blom

To be free to soar the sky
To be free to sail the sea
 is not as much a heaven
as the freedom to be me

To be free of the fear
that you can't bear the pain
when you reach for a rose
and its thorns cut a vein

To be free of worry
which tormends the mind
with things that didn't happen
Worry makes you partly blind

To be free of limitations
 of your belief you're just a part
you're neither light nor are you dark
 you can't just pull a day apart

Why don't you move in confidence
With all that is you
learn from everything that comes your way
 and say merci beaucoup


  1. Joli ca; while were in the mood for French. We enjoy many freedoms, while sometimes failing to reveal our 'true' selves.

  2. Thoroughly enjoyed that! And so much can be achieved by simply having the right attitude of mind.

  3. Positive thought. Such a powerful thing.

  4. marja! Loved it!! It should be printed on a poster and hung up everywhere! Great message....and thoughts to live by.

  5. I loved the photo, that's hilarious! Must be a training school or something...LOL
