Hey You! You are free!
Free as you will ever be
In this moment of rebirth
While today marks the first day of Spring
And tomorrow is still free
Will you wake up to witness the morning sun?
You do not know
I cannot tell you
Still, it is free
The smile of that child on the bus at a stop light
That is free too
You fantasize about the next martini,
The next glass of wine;
The next time you will bask in a the hot sun on vacation
You forgot the vacation is today
That hot sun is shining in your backyard
When was the last time you vacationed in your neighborhood?
Honey bees are singing — -
Lavender is in the air
Hummingbirds will rhyme with the melody of your hopeful heart
Do not wait for others to sing the tune with you
You are free
Do not be still
Summon your soul and the sun
And let your spirit guide you to your backyard; where the hot sun awaits
If you are too afraid; Start with your bedroom window
Stare into the light that reflects your soft, comfortable sheets
Do not wait for the martini, when the wine awaits
You are still free
Just as the last leaf that fell from the tree in your backyard
Yes, your backyard.
See, why you are free?
