Any good movement needs good poetry. My web searches have only uncovered the fact that there is a dearth of libertarian poetry unfortunately. So, like any good libertarian, I have decided to fix this problem myself (as best as I can anyways). I encourage others to add try their own abilities at writing libertarian-themed poetry.

I am a Free, Independent, Beautiful Human Being

By James M. Holland (5.27.2015)

I am a free, independent, beautiful human being.

You are a free, independent, beautiful human being.

 

What can stop us from sharing ourselves with each other?

                                                  our love and liberty?

                                                  our personal property?

 

Not the labors of living,

Not brutes and their bullying,

Not bureaucrats and their bullying either!

 

I am a free, independent, beautiful human being.

You are a free, independent, beautiful human being.

 

Freedom is living, loving, laughing.

Freedom is the sweet kiss of sunshine on my cheek,

                   an inner warmth in troubling times,

                   a knowing smile.

 

You are a free, independent, beautiful human being.

I am a free, independent, beautiful human being.

 

Between us lies only an illusory fathom of fear,

                                                                  fear of failures past or futures lost.

           

Separating us is nothing more than one free moment,

                                                        one independent act,

                                                        one beautiful .   .         .

 

You are a free, independent, beautiful human being.

I am a free, independent, beautiful human being.

 

What can stop us from sharing ourselves with each other?
