Find freedom in whatever small measures of peace you can.
It is yours for the freeing, yours for the making, your for the taking:
Freedom from stress, from strain, from hand-wringing worry;
Freedom from old tapes and older boxes;
Freedom from stale words and staler habits;
Freedom from harsh realities;
Freedom from histories repeated;
Freedom from bloated egos, punctured dreams, blame, sorrow;
Freedom from more-to-do-than-possible; unrealistic expectations;
Freedom from judgment–inside and out and in between;
Freedom from hate–it is not of you, never was.
In each breath. Each perfect petal of a flower, each song of bird;
In every new life born; all promise, all potential;
In everything you are, and everything you always had been,
but maybe forgot.
Find freedom in whatever small measures of peace around you.
It will grow.
For freedom expands like light in a mirror; multiplied.
