Freedom Is To You Calling

 

A poem by Peter S. Quinn

 

Freedom is to you calling,

Give life a heart so brave;

Each night hours are falling,

Into a dim hollow grave.

Hatred can be bottomless,

If you'll allow it to be;

But life is so fresh,

If it becomes all free.

 

Days by days will end,

But love can never so do;

Only down it will bend,

If it's not completely true.

Evening becomes a night,

Gathering shadows around;

Hold your feelings all right,

Lost can again be found.

 

Freedom is truth wearing,

Never a lie there inside;

Everyone else bearing,

Not from ourselves there hide.

You can grow out wisdom,

If the right seeds are sown;

For the conditions are calm,

If you acknowledge and atone.
