freedom and liberation

don't mean the same thing

skies and dreams

are two different places

pluck petals from thorny branches

he loves me, loves me not

each petal counts towards

freedom

dumped into bushels

too heavy to carry alone

suddenly the journey is scented sweet,

 bumps and trips and skinned knees

appreciate the after hours

then turning, floating in petals,

soft clouds and skies

that never end
