Freedom is Mine



Freedom is Mine
Written by Brooklyne

Locked and enslaved
Worked and must obey
The wishes of my master 
Long hours I’ve braved 
Food, once every day 
The wishes of my master

Hope stretched thin 
But clinging with all to
The promises of God
Knowing He will win
And will see me through
The promises of God

Seven letters 
Freedom, it is mine
Free, yet only in my dreams 
Standing before bidders 
I’m auctioned time and time
Free, yet only in my dreams

Bought by a man 
Kindness, his eyes said
My chains, he set me free!
He takes my hand
“Sorry, my brother, my friend.”
My chains, he set me free! 

For now I choose
To serve the Master
He has paid so I can be free
His side, will not loose
He has paid so I can be free


I rejoice much
For freedom, I taste 
God, my loving Master has won!
His mercy with such
Abounding grace 
God, my loving Master has won!

John 8:36 
"If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed." 

1 Corinthians 6:20
"For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's."

Romans 8:2 
"For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death."

This poem tells a story. A story of a slave who gets set free. 
We are just like this slave in my poem, because God sent His only begotten Son to die on the cross so that we could be saved. 
Wow! Jesus offers us a way out, a way to be free!
That is true love! What amazing grace! 
Lets choose, today, to serve our loving Heavenly Master.

I tried to post the song, Amazing Grace My Chains are Gone, but couldn't figure out how to do that. 
But I think we all know how the song goes, and I thought it fits good with this poem! 
How did you all like this poem? 
Do you like my new header?!? I can't believe June is almost over! Is anyone doing Camp Nano in July? I'm thinking about it! 
Any suggestions for trying Camp for the first time? 
I hope you are having a GREAT day! 
Lets talk in the comments!

  1. I LOVE your new header!!! It's sooooo pretty!!!

    I'm doing Camp NaNo in July - let me know if you plan on doing it, and I get have you get put in the same cabin I'm in, if you'd like. Camp is always lots of fun!! I'd personally suggest an easy goal. Something you know you can probably do. And then try to get past the goal.

    1. Thanks!!! I really like the way it turned out!

      Ok! I'm still gathering information on what it is like. If you have any tips, I'd love to hear about your experiences. I will email you if I decide to go ahead and try it this July! It sounds like lots of fun! I would definitely set my goal for something easier! :)

      Thanks for commenting!

    2. Well, what I usually do is set a goal I know I can reach, and then try to get past the goal. That might seem a little lame, but because unexpected things end up happening every NaNo, it always becomes more of a challence then it seems.

      The nice thing about Camp is you can set you own goal - a word count, a minute count, an hour count, a page count - whatever you like! For example, I'm editing, so I'm going a minute goal (can't remember what it is, though, lol).

      My writing group always has it's own cabin, and the people (members and guests) are always encouraging and ready to answer any question. We have hashtag wars, and a tradition of turning Marvel quotes into writing wisdom.

      Honestly, it's lots of fun. If you've never done actual NaNo before, trying Camp is a great way to start.

    1. Thank you! I was glad that I could use two of my senior pictures (with Rosie) for the header!
      Freedom is Mine is one of my favorite poems I have written. Didn't God demonstrate His amazing love when He sent Jesus to die for us? And Jesus, for sacrificing so much? We are truly loved! Because of that love, we can be set free! Wow!
      Thank you for reading, Sarah, and I hope you have a great day! <3

    1. Thanks so much, Gray! It was a little challenging at first, but once I got the right dimensions, it was a lot better! Actually, what I have now is my second try, the first one I made, I put as my google profile picture...

      Thanks! I like how this poem turned out to be a story! :)

      I'm glad you stopped by!

  6. That's beautiful poem! I like how John says free indeed, it's so much more than how the world thinks of freedom.
    And your header is lovely! It goes so well with everything else too. Great job!! :)

    1. Thank you, Jessica!
      If we accept God as our Savior, our Master, then are chains really are gone, we've been set free! What a powerful and amazing God we serve!
