Free to Stay

Greater freedom brings deeper love.

Wild spirit corralled, contained, shut in
Captured, prized, caged within

Succumbs, submits, surrenders, subdued
dying, living, alone, confused

Pressing, pushing, challenging, contends
Rattles, shakes, strikes, offends

Released, expelled, spirit set free
Circles, soars… returns to me

Needing, wanting, loving, soiree

No longer captive…

Is free–

To stay
