Freedom

Itís not about profits
Itís not about taking
It is about justice
And giving and making.
Itís about who we are
Our present and past
Itís the deeds that we value
The things that can last.
It starts deep within us
It comes from our souls
Itís the stuff that defines us
Our dreams and our goals.
Itís our best link to heaven
When allís said and done.
Itís the good thatís within us
Itís our sky and our sun.
Itís more than our words
And more than our thoughts
And more than our hopes
And more than our oughts.
Itís ourselves looking back
When we look in the mirror
Itís our history our honor
Itís†the things we hold dear.
When we stand all alone
In the silence of night
And hear a voice calling
Or see a faint light.
Itís that moment of truth
When the shroud is pulled back
When †the angels are crying
And weíre under attack.
Itís our inner voice saying
Itís the right thing to do
Itís humanity praying
For me and for you.
When all doubt has been lifted
Though our actions are flawed
We know we are free
In the presence of God.

Love this,it's profound and spiritual.The search for inner peace and enlightment is the greatest challenge we face and beautifully expressed in this poem.
Reviewed by Barbara Jo
This poem really touched my inner core, because it rings of deep truth, so simple and beautiful, yet deep and powerfully written.
I can only imagine these poetic words comes from a soul who has lived life fully, experiencing what life brings in its path and then taking a step back and using the gift to observe. and express. Thank you!
An award well deserved.
Reviewed by Michael True
A moving and inspirational piece! Obviously it appealed to the judges who invoked the noted award. If I would be so bold as to suggest two very minor changes... You use the word "all" several times throughout this piece. In two instances I believe it causes a disturbance in the flow of the poem. I am a reader and notice such things. "Itís all things we hold dear." (substitute "the" for "all") and "When all doubt has been lifted" (drop the "all") This will ensure a smoother reading of the poem.

It's a nice read, a lovely poem, especially the 2 last lines! Well done, Edward!
Reviewed by Ronald Hull
As intelligent human beings, we've always been free within our confines of survivalĖĖsometimes dictated by others from the family to the corporation. Freedom from and freedom to are two entirely different things and often get confused. The fact that we've survived this long means that we have the ability to survive longer.

You've presented some stirring words here.

What makes Tolkien's heroes so great and his villains so terrible? How do we rise to hero status or fall into corruption?..
