Freedom

What were their words

When they left the king?

 

Life

Liberty

Happiness pursuits

 

Sometimes we forget

This intention

Of light

 

I know they forgot

Half the nation

At least

But insert yourself

Into the Meaning

 

You deserve

Freedom

Equality

Rights

 

Your crown is yourself

Now be free

  1. This is so beautiful! And the photo complements perfectly. This line made me go back and read a couple of times – insert yourself into the meaning. It speaks to me of the need to become part of something heart and soul. And the way you have switched up the words – life, liberty, happiness pursuits – that is brilliant. A wonderful ode to freedom at a great time.
