Freedom to walk

within these fences
Freedom to speak

unless you offend
Freedom to move

without harming others
Freedom to drive

unless rules you bend

Freedom to eat

within social limits
Freedom to smoke

unless someone objects
Freedom to praise

without infringing on others
Freedom to buy

unless quality you expect

Freedom to sing

within the tunes decided
Freedom to dance

unless your beat doesn’t mix
Freedom to write

without your own opinions
Freedom to think

unless you thoughts conflict


to conform
