Freedom, Oppression, Distraction

What are my thoughts now?

Stream of consciousness. 

What makes me happy?

What makes me sad now?


The heart, mind, and soul

are but a concept

that exists in mind.


Those who try and squelch

the mind are the opposition.


My greatest fear is to

be in a position,

or a circle,

or job,

or marriage

that would rather see

me quiet then express

my thoughts. 


Pure freedom is the

ability of expression

and the opportunity

to push the boundary.               


Oppression is a 

real danger, but it

is never swift.


Distraction is what

allows the guard down.

When we appeal to

this societal concept

--of happiness

--we lose our notion

of what constitutes

expression.


Sometimes, the homeless

man screaming on the 

corner

is not so crazy,

after all.


Though random are his

thoughts,

it is his pure

expression

— and he is absolutely 

free.
