When we let our thoughts soar with the eagles
When we envision a horse gallop on a lake
When we can scrape at misery and hurl it
When we can still our thoughts
When we can paint darkness
When we can paint lightness
When we can fathom the unfathomable
When we can bring characters to life
When we can create suspense
When we can speak our deepest thoughts
When we can reveal our silliest follies
When we can rise above mediocrity
When we can learn of virtues
When we can see a rainbow in the skies
When we can see ourselves in another’s eyes
Only then will we be free.

Very nicely done!

@ Sherry Blue Sky, thank you so much Koko. Am humbled. Your poetry also connects with me because much as they are honest, they fly from the screen to heart.

@ The Unknowngnome, thank you so much. Been a while now but I will get back to my groove.

@ Wow Andy, that is so kind of you. I am really humbled. And that summation is more like what I should have added!
