A Free World…
A woman’s plea for life

It is a free world I live in
And yet freedom I don’t see.
With chains and ropes
My life hangs alive.
It is a free world I live in
And freedom when I ask for
‘Tis that which they deny.
It is a free world I live in
And yet freedom I don’t breathe.
The air of despair and doom
Encircles my life forever.
And freedom when I ask for
‘Tis that which they deny.
It is a free world I live in
And yet freedom I don’t feel.
The restrictions of life unnecessary
And meaningless obligations
Control my life
And take it away.
And freedom when I ask for
‘Tis that which they deny.
Oh, what freedom is this?
Freedom doesn’t seem free.
