Moment of Freedom

The shedding of shackles and confine
This quest of spirit and mind
The moment of birthing freedom sought
Beyond the illusion suppression has taught
The reach to the God within
To vanquish each false sin
With brush and paint I to proclaim
This Moment of Freedom in Truth's name
Peaks and flames of passion and desire
The light and glory of Spirit's known fire.

  9. Stunning in both words and paint, my god!

  10. SnowAngelJin - each of us has to work through the constraints that have been imposed or have grown out of our experiences - this is the work of life. With confront and resolve those shackled are loosened and ultimately freed.

    Catherine, I feel your compliment. Thank you!
