A Poem for Independence Day
in the USA…
To be free
To build my destiny
To work to own property.
To have my singular mind and speak about it.
To raise children as I was
in my own unique image.
like walking about on clouds
challenging myself, always moving forward to sculpt time.
Life rising in a crescendo that speaks my name
and sings my song with pure gusto.
While responsibility stands by to quiet down the celebration
of my life.
