Complete silence.
After two hours of struggle upwards
Resting at the peak, seeing everything
for miles.
And miles.
Nothing but the wind and
an unspoken consensus to remain silent
Savoring the moment.
Hearts rise with the sun,
Inexplicable tears on some faces,
perfect calm on the majority.
This is Freedom.
Everything untainted by gasoline, electricity,
and mindless conformity that stifles more than those combined.
If you listen carefully, intently enough…
You can maybe hear the serenity
Seeping into the limbs of those who never knew of it.
