I love freedom

dash the rules

get off the

beaten path


go your own way

rely on

your inner resources


face your feared

emptiness within

when you

go looking


see if there isn’t

something there–

just what you need

at the moment



builds self-reliance

and vice versa


Freedom also asks

for help–a lot

but does much

of the work
