Once I gave my freedom to the storm,
Scattered my power to the four winds forlorn.
Once I gifted my liberty to a single thought,
I was bound, gagged & internally caught.
Once I attached my values to the light,
I was blinded by its magnificence so bright.
It was only once with truth & honor I aligned,
Rest, solitude and internal strength I did find.
So be careful where you attach your values,
Be careful what storms, thought & light will tell you.
