I am trying to imagine
What freedom is.

I think it is vast, and serene
Like a painting of rolling hills,
Green pastures and open blue skies

I think it inspires movement
Like a dance
With a smiling partner

I think it tastes like fresh water
On a hot summer day
And feels like water, too
Like diving in a pool
Or swimming in the sea

These ideas
Are my liberation-
My freedom

My mind, free to imagine
Dancing feet
And the lively smiles this motion evokes.
And the miracle of water,
That somehow makes all things new.

I think today,
I will dance and swim
And drink fresh water from a stream
From this cell, in my mind.
