What is Freedom?

Freedom.
Freedom is a word, a liberty,
an illusion received at birth,
but freedom doesn't come for free,
ironically.
No, freedom is fought for or earned,
and as you grow, 
this you'll know,
but you'll also find that sometimes,
freedom is hope,
freedom is a moment of trust,
freedom is a good night's sleep,
freedom is not living in fear,
not living in pain,
freedom is fully being able to be yourself,
no restrictions,
freedom is walking outside feeling safe,
rather than in danger,
freedom is like floating or flying,
freedom is weightless,
freedom is a moment of relief,
and a moment of joy,
and knowing these moments,
these precious things, 
don't always last forever,
will make you embrace them, so much more.
