Writing about freedom

Is not the same as being free.
There’s a lot of things
That if I wrote about them
Would render me coward
Or a hypocrite
Because my pen is more fluent
Than my actual voice.
Its true, sometimes the words on the page
Feel rapturous
Transcendent,
But then the paragraph comes to an end
And the things I’ve been avoiding
Are still waiting for me.
Writing about freedom
Is not a substitute for the work of freedom
But a prophetic voice
And a signpost
To where freedom can be found.
