The Laws of Freedom

He swings.

A juxtaposition

of law

and freedom.


and the defying of it.

The very chains

which held down

now aid in the suspension

of a natural law.

Freedom flies

yet not without form.

Law ties

yet not without liberty.

A tension was set in place

to swing between the points

of freedom and responsibility

as the fathers stand in the background

and watch the nation swing.
