freedom


sparklers
[photo via pinterest]

stripes of red, white and blue.
they flow in the wind.
they twirl and leap,
doing their own dance.

if only i was as care-free as the flag.
i could do my own dance.
i could leap and twirl, fly and soar.
all without caring.

circles of exploding light,
they boom and sparkle,
they get 'oohs' and 'ahhs'
as they do their own dance in the sky.

they're free too, i think.
they get to go up, and up, and up,
until they stop,
and decide to show their colors.

i just want to be free.
i want to twirl,
and show off my colors,
like the flags and fireworks have.

i want to soar.
to dance.
to blast off.
to feel true freedom.

...don't you?
