31 Days Of Poetry- Day 7- FREEDOM- by Ayodele Sunday

-->
Like the whirlwind
Our minds unwind
From that that frozen state
That has held us captive in fate
A light flickered in our minds
And we realized we had been blind
The light in us became bright
And then we regained our sights
For we had groped in the dark
For so long that we thought life was black
Sound reason we lacked
So much that we moved with our backs
Now our veils are broken
By a serendipitous token
Caused by a new knowledge
We watched as folly fled
And our souls, once enchanted
Became fully liberated
We removed our shackles of ignorance
And refused to be limited by circumstance
No more ensnared by fright
We grew wings of courage and took flight
Our memories, once frozen in time
Have suddenly become alive
Alas we are free
