What Is Freedom?




Freedom is like a breath of fresh air



Freedom is being allowed to think



Being able to express your feeling



Without being persecuted for your beliefs







Without freedom you are shut away from reality



You become en trapped within your mind



Your very existence becomes stagnant



You become claustrophobic







Freedom allows you to choose



To investigate into everything



To be able to decide for yourself



What paths you want to follow







Not allowing freedom



Is like being kept in a cage



Not being able to feel wind upon your face



Not being able to feel the warmth of the sun







Not allowing freedom is a crime against humanity



It is everyone’s right to be free from tyranny



No one person should repress free speech



We are all equal on this earth, allowing each to be heard







We were all born to be part of this society



The only power that can take away our freedom



Is the wonderful energy that gave it to all?



Energy of light love and understanding







By taking away everyone’s freedom



You will be suffocating the spirit



So when the light of freedom is extinguished



You will forever be in the darkness of ignorance







For those that have that freedom



Cherish it with mind body and soul



For those who have no freedom



It is your destiny to fight for it







So many people in this world



Have not experienced the joy of freedom



It is like a mantle of dross covering your soul



Allow freedom to open your heart to a new life
