    Taylee91 and Froggy - Weekly Poetry Contest (126) Joint Winners

    To be Free
    By Taylee91


    Amber fields
    Beneath an ocean of blue
    A meadow lark chimes with the wind
    Thin blades still wet with dew

    Awakened quickly now
    Utopia forever lost
    A shrill cry escapes into the air
    Sight now blocked with dust


    Shadows long and thin
    Across a sea of red
    Sharp whistles and yelps resound
    A whip upon my head


    Gruffly frisked along
    Sleep ne'er to be had
    Chinks of metal utter in the air
    Land now dark and drab

    But a fire burns within
    Ignites the broken soul
    Breaking away with a single charge
    Freedom becomes the goal


    Taken for granted...
    By Froggy


    I yearn to...
    express any a thought
    wear any color or style
    speak my mind no matter who, where or what
    eat whatever I fancy
    marry whom I choose
    go where the wind leads me
    learn as much as I can
    be myself
    I yearn for freedom.

    Oh my gosh!! Thank you guys for voting for me! I seriously didn't see this until now :D I've been without internet for days and when I have had it, it's been like every other day.

    This is a great joy, thanks XD
