Freedom Comes From Within

Freedom comes from within
You can beat me, whip me, slash me, splash me
but I am still free 
to think what I want about you
to plot your demise
to write your transgressions down in my soul's center

Freedom comes from within
I can be in the most boring of boring of boring math classes,
not paying a bit of attention, but looking raptly attentive,
to fool the teacher, as I create my next poem, or my next painting

Freedom comes from within.
You can smack me and smash me, 
You can stick a gun in my face.
I am free to worry about what comes next,
or think about my children and how much they will miss me.

Freedom comes from within.
Survivors know this
better than most
and
always

Thank you M.L. I hope it is warmer where you are than where I am today.
