BY DIANE –  Age 9

Freedom is a beautiful word,
You’re as free as a bird.
But along with it comes responsibility,
Which is a pity,
Because we don’t understand,
That both go hand in hand.
And then we go wild
Become smaller than a small child.

If we learn
With the freedom we earn,
Life would be a song,
And we will all get along.
But if we don’t,
Then the world is doomed.

Its time to wake up
Join hands and take up
Freedom’s responsibility
To see smiles on everyone’s faces.

A mature poem for a nine year old. The thought, poetic intensity, and the choice of words are well blended. Keep writing! Good Luck!                                                                                                                                     –   Vishakha   2/26/06
