TITLE
The full title is FREEDOM, A Poem of Leaving Darkness. There are many poems about freedom. In this poem, freedom comes from forgiveness.

The second part of the title is the important part. We are in a darkness that enslaves us. The title gives us hope that we can leave the darkness and become free.

STRUCTURE
This poem is 26 lines long forming seven sentences. The majority of the poems in this collection are written in the third person; but in this one, I use the first person to tell the story of the reader.
"I see you oppressed
And driven through darkness..."

Illustration for the Poem Freedom,
From the book Beyond These Dark Lands
Are Edges of Joy,

and
"...What you are seeking
I would give freely."

Each line is five syllables long, so it has some structure.

OUTLINE
The first five lines describe the searching oppressed reader who seeks freedom. 
Lines six through thirteen describe the speaker's reaction to the one who is seeking freedom. 
Lines 14 through the end are a testimony of having found freedom and the supernatural response to share it with others.

MEANING
The meaning of this poem is that though you are in darkness and troubled with guilt, but you can hope because freedom from your guilt is available. It says that others have found freedom through Christ and you may find it too.

This poem is one of the places where the book becomes personal, here I, as the author, speaks directly to the reader. It is a poem of hope and goodwill. It makes clear that Christ forgiveness is hope for the lost.

This poem is illustrated with a pen drawing of a dark, narrow ravine and a path that leads to the open space.

SCRIPTURE
The bottom of the page has a verse of scripture from the epistle of the Colossians. ”For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son He loves, in Whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.” Colossians 1:13-14, NIV.

This poem tells you that there is hope and you can find freedom from all your inner darkness.
