It is day five of Poetry at WP University, and I am playing with a limerick narrative on freedom.
Let me know what you think.
When I was a corporate slave,
and spent my days in an “office cave”,
I lost touch with freedom.
Where was my wisdom?
Teaching my soul to be brave!
My soul became a fugitive,
as my brain refused to leave,
addicted to PowerPoint.
What’s the point?
Live off sunrises is fictive!
The soul went off to conceive
shared interests, and a good plan to weave.
Through a meeting of hearts,
and no flowcharts,
they settled for freedom to live.
Day 5. Writing101 Poetry: Prompt is Freedom by Impossiblebebong
Freedom is a fundamental need. It is so powerful that nations go to war for it. People engage in both despicable and heroic deeds to gain it. In the name of freedom we suffer, make sacrifices, and attempt to perform miracles. For freedom we are willing to lose everything and risk our lives, since no life really is one without freedom.
What freedom means is open to interpretation, which is why it’s been a recurring subject in art. In today’s poem, share your take on freedom. While you’re at it, be fearless with your thoughts. Don’t hold back. Unleash your emotions and be honest with yourself. Uncensored writing coming from the heart often produces the most amazing read.
