My Soul Is Freed ( a poem of inspiration)
When I see small children happy and all playing outside,
As baby birds are fed by a mother's love, I must confide,
My heart leaps up, as I share such sights, that I may see.
My soul rejoices, of this moment's wealth, all inside of me.
As I witness a child in school to realize that they can spell,
Words are no longer mysteries to see, to read them well,
No matter how old their clothes, few to fit as they should,
They have a feeling of their own self worth, that it is good.
When I am so blessed to watch a mother duck, her best devotion,
As she sits on eggs, guarding with her life, lifts my fondest emotion.
While a maternal goose, stoically leads a parade across the street,
Her babes to follow every step, brightens my day, makes it complete.
A student, walks in pride, as they receive a diploma, of its meaning,
Knowing in my own heart, I helped her to succeed, it not demeaning.
Then honored one day, as a new born child to be placed in my arms.
My own flesh and blood, graces me then, with her smiles, her charms.
The beauty of an evening's sunset, or such vibrant colors of the dawn,
A benevolence given to human kind, its significance, we are not alone.
Wonders of this world, just a small part of a huge universe, all so grand,
Enlightens, to free our very souls, of these marvels, a life to understand.
