Freedom

Freedom

by Bryson Byrd

 

Freedom, utter freedom

What it must feel like out there.

Running through the streets without a care.

The open air sweeps across my shoulders

Reminding me of their weightless feel.

Then like a cell,

The walls come rushing back boxing me in.

Surrounding me with shelter with the tease of a glass window.

This gives me the mere sweet taste of

Freedom, utter freedom

What it must feel like out there.

Byrson Byrd – is a senior at North Carolina Central University studying Elementary Education with a concentration in English Writing. Byrd completed high school on the campus at JD Clement Early College and choose to continue her bachelors at North Carolina Central University. Byrd loves writing, she often says she writes not just for joy but also to feed her soul. A soul that loves the feel of freedom. A feeling that she claims is only captured in the sunlight on a horse’s back running across an open field or lost behind the spine of a bound notebook scribbling on the thin lined paper.
