Freedom Is…


Freedom is

My family

Coming over

On boats

To try

And die

In a place

Where opportunity

Is more important than

Survivability.

 

 

Freedom is

The bra burners

The sitters

The marchers

The ones who

Got raped

Got killed

So that I

Can stand in

A booth

And punch a

Button that says

“Vote.”

 

Freedom is

The fact that I can

Disagree

That I can

Hate

That I can be

Appalled by

That I can

Spit vitriol

About my

Country and

Not be maimed

Or killed.

 

Freedom is

The ones who came

Before me

To make my

World something

I can change for

The better for

The ones who

Come

After me.


IMG0083-E.M. Green

E.M. Green is a 32 year old woman from Knoxville, TN. She fashions herself to be a writer in the same way that the Velveteen Rabbit fashioned himself to be a real rabbit. Hopefully her story will end up much like his. E.M. also works as a grocer so never compares 4135s to 4013s. She spends copious time on Facebook but hopes to accomplish more with her life than getting more than 40 likes on that picture of herself with Ron Perlman. In her lifetime E.M. has written playbill blurbs, poems, screenplays, prose, articles, and more than a few greeting cards which have sustained her creative expression thus far. Being a greedy little writer, there is always room for more.
