At Liberty: A Poem about Personal Freedom

At liberty 
For the first time in my life:
Free to just drive and drive
Or dive into the sea; 
To live without fear
No longer to care
How harshly you judge me.

At liberty
To stand alone
Upon a mountain top:
I’ll stand beside you should you care
To join me
But I do not fear
To go my own way.

At liberty
For the first time in my life 
But that’s not quite the truth:
At liberty 
For the first time since my youth
To see the world, run wild
Skip lightly, lightly as 
A carefree child.
