"If the price of Freedom is you.
Then enslave me.
For freedom is below your value.

If the price of freedom is death.
Take away what I have.
People living is whats best.

If the price of freedom is selling your soul.
but a not for sale sign
on mine.

If the price of freedom is gunshots
make me go deaf.

If the price of freedom is bloodshed
Make me go blind
So I don't have to see the gruesome scene."

If the price of freedom is free
Give it all
Give it to me.

But if freedom has a price
Take it from me
I wont think twice.

Is what I have worked for
Not of value to you,
even though you don't sacrifice.


The author's comments:
I am friends with soldiers and when I see protesters on corners with signs that read "honk for peace" it makes me think of how spoiled us Americans are. We want freedom, yet we don't want to fight for our rights even if that means people have to die. Freedom has a price and everyday people sign over their lives to pay for your freedom. Don't protest soldiers, thank them, because after all, without them we would not be free.
