Freeing Your Senses

Short and sweet poem about the freedom to do what you really want to do.

The Five Freedoms

To See and Hear
What is Here
Instead of what should be,
was, or will be.
To Say
What one feels and thinks
Instead of what one should.
To Feel
What one Feels,
Instead of what one ought.
To Ask
For what one wants
Instead of always waiting for permission.
To Take Risks
In one’s own behalf,
Instead of choosing to be only ‘secure,’
And not rocking the boat.”

-Virginia Satir
