Writer's notes: This is a simple abecedarian poem. What is an ABC Abecedarian poem. According to https://www.cuyahogalibrary.org/ "ABC: Abecedarian Poem --- The abecedarian is an acrostic which spells out the alphabet, either word by word or line by line."
This poem represents my thoughts regarding FREEDOM. I can write, but I can't fight. Too old, I say. This is my way. My voice might not travel far; however, the people of Ukraine are in my prayers. Praying that the Ukrainians can continue their fight against the Russian invaders, may providence help in their fight for FREEDOM!
