    With freedom you can do anything.
    But you also have responsibilities as well.
    If you think about it freedom is like a choice to pick.
    There are things you wanna do and things you don’t wanna go against.
    But people can make their own decisions with what they want to do.
    Freedom means that you can do what you want.

    You are able to do anything you wanna do when you go on.
    Freedom gives you the power to make things happen.
    Don’t ever give up on your wishes and dreams.
    Always believe in yourself and have confidence.
    The more you push through the more successful you will become.
    Always remember that you have support by your side at all times.

    Do whatever I want without the status quo stopping my vision
    That’s the freedom of an artist, our freedom
    A freedom that won’t harm anyone else
    Just for me and everyone else to be acknowledge with originality

    That’s the freedom of an artist, our freedom
    To not be held back by trends that stop our ideals

    Hi All,

    Nice work on the pantoums so far. Thanks especially to those who marked the lines with the letters A, B, C, D, etc. This makes it informative for the peers who go after you! Dahyanerra, Fahamida, Andy, Danel, Oscar, and Lina all did well! Steven, review the pantoum form! You have the right theme, but the pantoum form is less clear.

    Everyone else, you have a few hours yet! Please participate!
