The Only One

What is the sound I cannot hear? 
The sound, not ringing in my ear. 
Wow! What is the beauty I see? 
The beauty that is all around me. 
What is this breeze I feel, touching my skin? 
The breeze that pushes all the way in. 
Freedom, freedom is what I feel. 
Freedom, as I push to climb the hill. 
Freedom from trouble. 
Freedom from men. 
Freedom as I get on, and ride with the wind. 
Riding is peaceful. 
Riding is fun. 
Riding is lovely, when you’re the only one.
