Inside there’s a sixties-wild-child trying to get out
She’s hidden behind wrinkles, gray hair and doubt
She wants to laugh at nothing, run wild and free
She wants to sing, dance, and to hug every tree
She wants peace on earth and flowers tucked in her hair
She wants songs blowing in the wind and miniskirts to wear
She wants to be forever young at heart and to want without guilt
She wants to love at any cost, live life to the fullest and to its hilt

This author wrote a different genre with this book, steampunk, futuristic. I’m glad she did, I loved it. It’s a look at what the future could be after a Great War. Cities abandoned because of no food, buildings abandoned left just as the were. It was eight hundred years ago the Great War happened, not in Liberties lifetime. It’s safer to stay in the air than be on the ground. Liberty does make ground stops when she really has to. Download this short story to find out what she encounters during her ground stops. I would love to tell you, that would be wrong. This is a very well written short story, what I like is the epilogue, goes on with what humanity can do in the face of adversity.
