Freedom

The rabbit is not free when caught by the cat
though it lazed in the golden sun
on God’s green grass
aware of no predator
The bird is not free when caged
though it knew of no boundaries
and had flight in its wings
and song in its heart
If freedom is your desire
you must pay the price
of comfort, safety and security
You must be smarter, faster and stronger
than your hunter and his weapons
Else only ignorance is the cure
for the pain of broken heart or soul
behind iron bars or in talons of steel
