Her Brand of Freedom… as told by Me.

Lemme tell you

what Freedom is to her,

1 breath, 2 steps, 3 heartbeats

4 hours bent over Black & White

and Red

I will tell you what her Freedom means

Freedom is the no-show voice in her ear

Telling her to stay down

Freedom is

the absence of the niggling in the back of her neck

the prying hands that threaten to rip her apart.

Freedom is a pass at conformity,

an entrance to the alternative life

a life without Bullies & Coconuts & Herbal teas.

Let me introduce you to her brand of freedom

it’s the sound of her voice

telling her freedom story

waving the flags that spell her colours

no middle man.

Freedom is the sound

that greets her victory

Freedom is letting go.
