Freedom isn't simply: Do your will.
One wills (or not) within some circumstance,
Restricted by (or not) love, longing, chance,
Training, courage, passion, hunger, skill.
Yet one must freely choose, for good or ill.
Nor can one choose with less constraint than plants,
Intentional as cloves, as daffodils.
Nor can one change the steps that one must dance,
Even as one chooses freely still.
