Finding Freedom

By Clare Bass, CSJ

Deep in the wilderness I sit.
I hear you in the wind,
in the animals calling out to one another.
I feel you everywhere.
I am free.
Totally free in your presence.
I know I can do what I want.
But what is it that I want?

In this freedom I choose love.
I choose to go where love is.
I choose to share love freely,
As it has so freely been shared with me.
I choose to love always.

Freedom gives me a choice.
When I choose I commit.
I choose everyday.
I choose each moment.
Is it all done with love? I think so.

Perhaps the more commitment,
The deeper I go, the deeper we go.
Deep in the wilderness I sit.
