Am I Free?
I wake in the morning,
Make coffee or tea,
I feed my pets,
Wonder if I’m free.
I shower and dress,
I grab my backpack and keys,
Pet my dog and cat,
Another day to appease.
I work all day,
Come home and exhale,
Another day over,
Did I pass or fail?
I brush my teeth,
I climb in bed,
I say a prayer,
I rest my head.
And, then again in the morning I climb out of bed.
I Am Free
I wake in the morning and lay quiet and still.
I ponder my day wondering what will be God’s will.
I thank him for life, for family and friends.
I thank him for abundance and make any amends.
I head to the kitchen, make coffee and smile.
At the preciousness of pets that love for a mile.
I turn on some tunes, jump in the shower.
Out the door I head feeling full and empowered.
At work I try to embrace each interaction I’m in,
With a word of encouragement, a smile to extend.
Remembering my purpose for each moment each day,
Is to maintain loving thoughts, towards who or what comes my way.
I head to my home, a place of acceptance and peace.
I love on my children and pets, and pray life’s experiences won’t cease.
I brush my teeth, climb in bed, say a prayer, rest my head.
I fall to sleep in comfort knowing there is nothing to dread.
And, in the morning, am in anticipation for what is ahead.
