Freedom of Thought
I can't think inside this house.
My thoughts have no room at all.
They struggle, battling each other for space,
jostling against hard, closed walls,
reeling back to me clumsily,
angry, trapped and bitter,
inflicting the darkest mood.
I need wide open spaces
to send thoughts soaring away,
to circle around and arrange themselves
sweeping along the bay,
over the rocks and over the sea,
skimming along the waves,
returning refreshed, renewed.
