Can You See It?

Can You see it?
Peek at it
Leap for it
Neatly, discreetly standing by Your side
It’s Your old friend freedom
Reason with it?
You can’t
It’s there or it isn’t
Tip-toeing side by side
Waiting for You to claim it
Retain it
Sustain it
Reframe it
Refrain from it if You will
It’s still there
Rare, bare
With care
Expecting Your glare
So You can finally share
What’s fairly out in the open air
Say Your prayers
Wallow in despair
Read Voltaire
Always be aware
It’s already in Your lair
