Sons and Daughters of Freedom

In celebration of the Christian celebration of Pentecost, the holy day that marks the moment of spiritual empowerment as enjoyed by Jesus’ disciples, I share with you my poem, Sons and Daughters of Freedom that illustrates the journey we are to embrace toward our own spiritual awakening and empowerment. Happy Pentecost! 

Sons and Daughters of Freedom

I’m made of God’s Spirit inside and out.

This is the truth that life is about.

Energy flowing from my head to my toes

keeping me healthy and helping me grow.

Nurturing this Spirit will help me to be

my most true self, Loving and Free!

 

The power center at the base of my spine

reminds me the earth is ours, yours and mine.

The gifts of creation promised to me,

blessings received most abundantly.

Food, clothing, shelter, this place feels safe.

There’s always enough!  Fear can’t show its face.

 

The center in my belly is where new life is made.

Here, nurtured dreams and visions won’t fade

When secure in the truth that support will be mine

As I create life with our Source that’s Divine.

 

Courage is centered where ribs separate.

Believing the truth – I AM GREAT!

I can be and do and live what is true.

Fear cannot stop me or make me feel blue.

 

At the center of my chest lies a heart filled with joy.

Love is what made me and each girl and boy.

I breathe deep of the love and the joy that is mine,

as I share it with others, their hearts too will shine.

 

Hearing my truth and speaking it well.

Allowing the life in me its story to tell.

Freedom is mine, not bars, ropes or chains.

My throat sings out its happy refrain.

 

I see with my eyes and know in my mind,

That truth is really easy to find.

A dream, a vision, a feeling, a thought –

is how I know what is good and what’s not.

 

Through the top of my head flows the Spirit of peace –

the Divine Source within me that never will cease.

When I’m quiet and still, I know me to be

One with this Spirit and all that I see.

 

I’m made of god’s Spirit inside and out.

This is the truth that life is about.

Energy flowing from my head to my toes

keeping me healthy and helping me grow.

Nurturing this Spirit will help me to be

my most true self, Loving and Free!
