Modern Day Freedom

What is freedom…

Slaves by the clock

Self-image, status

Grown up toys

And gadgets

Stuck in a rat race

Is that freedom?


Freedom is…

A simple life

A simple house

Time for each other

And for loved ones

Time to enjoy fruits of labor

Watch the sunset

Swim in the ocean


What is freedom…

If you’re depressed

stressed, tired, can’t sleep

Near burn-out, can’t smile

Worried, aggressive, intolerant

Is that freedom?


Freedom is…

Being content

Being happy

Regardless of

View of society


Freedom is…

Having the time

To smell the roses

Walk in sunshine


Not hurrying

Enjoying the simple things

Simple things mean a lot

Appreciate it, doesn’t cost much


Freedom is…

Being content

Of who you are

And your achievements

Don’t compare yourself

With anyone

If you compete

You lost freedom…
