True Freedom


What does it mean to truly be free?
There is no such thing in today’s society.
Freedom of speech? I should say not!
When everything that is said, is all for naught.
Freedom of religion? Such a tragedy!
Never again to worship openly.
Freedom of life? Never have seen.
Some form of payment, just to be.
Freedom to do what you choose?
Perpetrated actions are all a ruse.
So, to you, what does it mean to be free?
When I’m finally called home, I will truly be free.

About Dawn Marie DiMartino

I had lived most of my youth in New York, but have been a native of Florida for over 20+ years. I am recently separated, a mother of 2 adult children and I am a retired analyst. My passion for writing and drawing started at a very early age. I have continued through my adult life taking a pen to hand and compiling my innermost thoughts, feelings and expressions on paper. My writing and drawing keep me in a calming frame of mind when I am putting it all down. Some/Most of my writings can tell you about my personal story. I have published 4 poetry books, 3 children's books, and have been involved in 4 anthologies.
