Lungs of Freedom
Passing through a field
For the first time in my life, I felt healed.
I’m surrounded by thousands of yellow poppies.
My lungs are becoming spacious lobbies.
Little by little, I’m recovering.
A burden has been lifted.
Finally, I can say out loud
that I’ve been gifted with the
freedom in my lungs.
I feel like a ray of light.
Now, the Sun is slowly hiding
And I’m reminding myself of the beauty
around me before it disappears.
Luckily, I will enjoy it again,
After all those years.
