Poem: Only Life is Free

Updated on January 1, 2012

Only life is free!

Tired of hearing

About that great


that's actually

for free.

Because it’s

good for you,

Can't simply mean

that it's also

good for me.

But look carefully

it's seems that's

the strategy

which they are

being used

on everybody

with great success

everywhere today.

So who's really

is protecting us?

From these


Free ness?

That is somehow

Never truly

being shared.

Well tonight

am going to

watch a show

That wiil be

coming on TV

It's commercials

Have already

put the stinger

deep into me.

As of now

they have


to have totally

convinced me.

It's good to go.

But what they

don't know

Is that I

have definitely

went through this

sometime before

So now I am able

To guarantee

both you and myself

that when what

was promised

really comes on.

The commercials

will again be

that which

have already

long before

Stole the show.

All the free ness

Have been

long gone.

Taken away


It truly was

never for free.

Yet another

fool Is born.

Making promises

carving roads

That fools like we

may travel on

where they

can then fool


especially on TV

But I do know

this one thing

That has been

given for free

That’s the life

which the

Most High God

Gave to you and me.

If for any reason

he should

change his mind

like right now

decide that

this is as good

a place as any


the beat time

for him to charge

How much

should we pay

for that which

is priceless?

The only cost

There is for life.

Was to thyne

own self be true

If you want to live

treat each other

good and also

with respect

Nothing else

Could stand

this large

if we put his


in charge

because no one

could duplicate

life's strategy

Can’t come close

to even pay

for being

in this reality

To hire someone

using wicked


Playing these

foolish tricks games

on TV.

on posted signs.

and on billboards.


crooked lines

Trying to promise

To have something


For your's truly

Now again you will

be having me


What this time

could that really be?

For I can

guarantee you

I already know !

Only life is free!

      Thank you senoritaa. For seeing it, just the way it is . I sincerely appreciate when the light gets captured, for there is help.

      I love to think it's my only comfort , I tried many things in life and I find then all so far temporary .

      Life it a search , that what made me gravitate to your end of the road poem....that search engine is faith and hope , we have but this lifetime to get on course, and it's quite tempting. I am grateful to my parents and most grateful to God and my belief.

      I am encouraged by your comment it was freely given, and still a chance at redemption, from within every sincerity.

      To thyne own self be true.

      How very thoughtful of you Sky to have written this. Life was given free to us, but we put prices on it as well. We sell our souls to buy material happiness, which ultimately we would leave behind when we leave this life.

      That your mankind for you ,oh and mine too. I live here also . So you see why green peace and the two lovely ladies that I met here, who are trying to promote earth day etc.

      That's same as what you are recognizing here . everything free costing I am happy you can say it in your way , once you are not shooting this messenger.

      But life is free and this is our human tragedy , it's dawns on me every day , it would only punish me if I look back , and that's why I don't .Listen this.

      Appreciate you sharing your true feelings.
