freedom - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
The freedom to starve and the freedom to become an abused "free" slave is incompatible with loving your neighbour as yourself. Yet the freedom to a proper share of the global harvest, to clean water, a home, good health, to nature and a safe environment is compatible with love. So when you think of freedom, my friend, run it through the "love filter" first... otherwise all you are protecting is the freedom to become monsters and victims of monsters.
Give me the space to dance and lay down your expectations of what dance is. Give me time to think and lay down your expectations of what thoughts are or should be. Give me the right to eat, to have shelter and be clothed, and lay down your expectations of what that should be. Then I am free. Then we can talk as equals and rediscover the art of cooperation. I need you. I love you. It is within me to help you. And because we are human you are the same; we mirror each other. In this freedom is born a peace, something that will stretch into as many days as the sun has left to shine upon.
The wind ran its icy fingers through her hair as she grinned through chapped lips. She was where she wanted to be. They'd come looking for her soon, but for now it was just her, the wind, and the swallows, appearing to be dancing in the strong winds as she stood in the midst of it her hands in the air as if she was reaching for something.
There was a time when I was your poisoned apple. Half green, half red on the outside but black and rotten on the inside like an angel in disguise. There was no hope of rescue for me but somehow, you found a way to light a fire inside me. A flame so magnificent that it blinded the darkness left lurking in my heart. Then I was set free. Free from the prison of thick brambles and deadly thorns which I planted for myself. I was free from an evil so thick, I couldn't control it. I will never be able to repay you for your kindness, but I can try by offering you my heart and giving you my soul. Always and forever.
In every snowflake that falls, in every leaf that somersaults to the ground, my heart longs to be outside. Yet I'm stuck inside, locked away from freedom. Happiness seems so far away, yet right outside the window. You see, I took my freedom granted and now freedom takes me for granted. It takes years to gain freedom but takes only a few seconds to lose it. So travel gratefully tonight, my friend for you have a reason to live for as freedom doesn't chose just anyone...
"Find out what you want and go after it as if your life depended on it. Why? Because it does. People that have found their passion, people that found the things they love, people that found the things they can pour their lives into, those people live longer. Express something creative, be who you are from the depths of your heart regardless of what anyone else thinks. I'm trying to encourage everybody out there to take advantage of life. Get busy living..."
