Freedom is not FREE

So. hard. to. be. thankful. for. these. dark. days

telling all
in confident terms
all is well
freedom's at hand!

back inside
there's no escape
a vice-like grip
on heart and mind...
soul like a specter
slipping through
bony, superhuman restraint

resist the urge
resist the urge to scream

focus on the blue sky
thy kingdom come…
in the luminous darkness
i remain

necessary subtraction

minus the drama and suffering of fools
take -away nonsense
subtract excess
less pettiness and negativity

plus quiet and
add-in long walks and dog petting
include plenty of  breath
increase yoga connections

inner peace
and equanimity
