The Valuelessness of Wild Things

Something I heard or saw
Something I felt
A thing?
A part
Apart?
Inside
Or an outsider
Bound and restless
Waiting to run free
Like horses
“A free spirit”
“Folks don’t like nobody being too proud or too free”
Is freedom a form of wildness?
Do some consider it an illness?
And sometimes therefore valueless?
Is it marketed
Fought for
Sold
Bought for
Pennies on the dollar
Or is it priceless
And therefore terrifying?
