haiku for free

released from service
suffering differently now
free to get a job

freedom illusion
get up go to work come home
day in and day out

free, do what you want
no restrictions, make mistakes
you'll regret later

free to be you, me
grow up strong, kind, be yourself
don't get beaten down

  1. I am not a haiku commenter.

    But I love the title of this one.

    Very much.

  2. thanks, anti-haiku friend.

    the title is better than the haiku. maybe it's the name of my book of poems.

  3. "free to be you, me
    grow up strong, kind, be yourself

    I like how "me grow up strong" sounds like cookie monster if you read by punctuation rules
    tee hee

  4. nicole, sometimes my daughter talks like that, too
    "me grow up strong"
    when she's pretending to be a baby.
    nice that you noticed that.
    global thanks for all your noticing.
    love.
