Unleash my soul and let my dreams run free.
Confinement binds my heart as freedom mourns.
Refine my mind with creativity.
Direct me until cleverness is born.
And walk with me upon a lighted trail.
Release my ingenuity this morn.
Fettered thoughts seek wisdom to no avail.
Explanations flooded; old views congealed.
When freedom reins, philosophies unveil.
I heard the sound of laughter in a field.
A distant bliss that unto me was born.
And what pray tell was at that time revealed?
A pleasantness that on free reins was borne.
Imagination voiced in newfound dreams.
Unleashed, within my soul, my muse reborn.
Thus, everyday is filled with new sunbeams.
Where stagnant hopes once filled a weary heart,
New beauty from my soul forever streams.
And pondering each thought is now my art.
