Saxon Crow

Freedom #2

I'd love to write what is on my mind

But if I did I'd no longer be kind

I want to say what needs to be said

But once I did it could be the end

My conscience gets the better of me

And I wonder

If I didn't have one, would I be free?

    Many of us feel like this SC but that freedom is always in our mind and heart.

    Ohh, the only freedom is getting away from my singing. That's what folk tell me anyway! lol.

      Fair comment Orchi!

        I never know. I go on having singing lessons, about 8,473 so far. I never spot the tutor's ear plugs. He says you're doing fine, just fine! lol.

        I feel the same lately just looking at the news in the UK and all the rest, I bet if you did have the courage you would draw a masterpiece, no doubt about that. Biggest hugs dear Sax. 💖 Ps yes you would then feel free. Sometimes it just has to be said.

          I'd just come across as a grumpy old f***er I reckon Teddy lol

          • Teddy.15

            Maybe grumpy but less of the old please lol 🤣

            Free from your conscience perhaps. But not from whoever/whatever makes you upset/angry/indignant/frustrated/sad. And anyway, just write it - you don't need to publish it. I find it very therapeutic when any of the above. It a great thought-provoking stanza.

            I have posted some poems in the past .. which were a bit personal .. then regretted it feeling like I was making others feel bad or sad . I think it’s ok to share a sad poem every now and then but I do think others maybe prefer reading happier ones ..

              I wrote a poem about that lol
