Writer’s Quote Wednesday Writing Challenge – Freedom

Ronovan and Colleen have given us ‘freedom’ for our prompt this week in the Writer’s Quote Writing Challenge.  I have found a wonderful quote below that certainly sums up my thoughts on ‘freedom.’

Freedom is not worth having if it does not include the freedom to make mistakes.

–  Mahatma Gandhi

 

Freedom to choose what colour

I want my hair to be

Freedom to wear what clothes I like

For my personality!

Freedom to drive my car around

Wherever I want to go

Freedom to ring my friends up

When I’m feeling low

Freedom to go out to work

And earn my own money

Freedom to laugh freely

If I find something funny!

Freedom to go swimming

On a hot and sunny day

Freedom with the words I use

In what I write or say.

Freedom with the food I eat

Or if I choose to drink

Freedom to marry whom I want

Who cares what others think?

Freedom with sexuality

Whether straight or gay

Girl, boy, or transgender

I can choose to live my way!

Freedom to make mistakes

To learn and then move on

Freedom to teach others

On where we got it wrong!
