met a tibetan monk in a monastery

kept going back to the monastery over the next few years

became friends with the monk

monk called me up today

“i have de-robed. it took me 22 years to figure it out…but i feel light. i feel free.”

freedom comes in many colours

One Response to “freedom”

  1. yea so subjective…….thot of penning something…
    Some sing aloud their anger
    Some hide behind a wall
    Others protest on the street
    while another resigns
    for you and me
    what is being free?
    He gives up his desires
    and dons a robe
    She walks the desert
    to make love to the wanderer
    to stay alive.
    you and me, do tell
    what really is being free?
    are we ever free?
