Nina's Freedom

Tears and pain overwhelming,
The sun shows no mercy to every soul working,
Nina slaves to work the fields,
Her master rages and pounds his fist ,
With violence he conjures fear at his fingertips,

The days grew long and weary,
Nina gazed at the flowers on the hillside,
and sought comfort in their beauty,
Born into a life of slavery,
She longed for freedom and a release from her misery,
One day she mustered all that she can ,
Running from the fields with hope in hand,

Nina discovers a place, unfamiliar,
She looks high and low for a sign of welcome,
Wanting nothing but to fit in,
From a distance she sees a man,
He walks towards her with a smile and extends his hand,
Sensing only serenity and a nature forged of good,
Nina agrees to his companionship 
Following him giving thanks to God,

Years pass and Nina finds peace,
All feelings and memories of her past , ceased,
She tends to her flowers, with a gentle smile ,
And tells herself ,
"To find this heaven i would have walked a thousand miles"
