    Excellent piece. Line 5 the word 'anything' counts 3 syllables and this makes the line counts 8 syllables rather than 7. I can suggest you change it to read 'all things'. I enjoyed the read

    'freedom's just another word for nothin left to lose.' I'll keep what I ain't got. Like the haiku, though.

    I like this one , but agree with Arild here "if I could only keep my freedom" I especially like the first in the set.

    hmmm...I'm not sure about the last line..but I like the rest lol Kind of dominant is what I read...perhaps not intended.
