a chance

i chased freedom

freedom chased me

in the midst of it all

the other we did not see

i realize freedom is in me

in the seed is the tree

kindness can come from strangers 

across the sea

i have stopped chasing freedom

freedom has stopped chasing me

i pause to see the white winter sun

listen to the black night sea

serendipity…if you hear me

make our paths cross

i want a chance to share

happiness and loss
