Fanatics

If you owned the mountains and all the land to the sea,
Would you give it all away so that others could be free?
If you held a heart and kept it captive in your own,
Have you the confidence to let it have the freedom to roam?

Every degree of freedom comes with a certain cost.
What would be the greatest thing that you wouldn’t want to be lost?
Did you think of love, was that the first on your mind?
Or, are you one of those who insist on love being redefined?

To love and to be merciful are both freedoms that can be enjoyed,
But not all are so lucky nor fanatics so mindfully inclined!

About Daniel Kemp

Daniel Kemp, ex-London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver never planned to be a writer, but after his first novel —The Desolate Garden — was under a paid option to become a $30 million film for five years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company what else could he do? Nowadays he is a prolific storyteller and in May 2018 his book What Happened In Vienna, Jack? became a number one bestseller on four separate Amazon sites: America, UK, Canada and Australia. Although it’s true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows best; murders laced by the mystery involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the short stories he writes, namely: Why? A Complicated Love, and the intriguing story titled The Story That Had No Beginning. He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication, been described as —the new Graham Green — by a managerial employee of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of signing events, and he has appeared on ‘live' television in the UK.
