"Freedom"

Fluttering wings catching fire with the intensity to take flight
Into another dimension where everyone’s heart is truly good, however in spite
Where we are not destined to our own demise by our own selfish endeavors
That is the place
We all want to be
And it’s Freedom
So Uplifting
So unimaginably free


A struggling family on the precipice of destitution
The only thing that can keep them holding onto the crackling edge
There faithful love and affection
Unfortunately this does not keep their house rooted deep into the stagnant earth
Soiled with doubt and muddy with despair
But at least when it’s abruptly swept away
Their hearts won’t have to pay
To the irate cyclone moving fiercely in disarray
There is a place we all want to be
And it may not be concrete
Oh in fact it is very much abstract
But it lies somewhere we may never feel intact


A scared, insecure young girl
Here innocence lost without a moment’s trial
The judge raised the gavel and slammed down in denial
Her back lays cramped against the torn wall
Of all her life, suddenly seemed to be quite small
A crime she didn’t commit
But a punishment she must receive
While the real culprit drives recklessly loose
Of any true virtue and resurrecting romance
She must lay here and await the warden’s entrance
There is a benevolence we all lose once you can be sure
But let us not lose it twice, three times no more
Oh we must prevent ourselves from ever entering this place
Of a cruel twisted fate that we never were intended to create

A girl lies in her bed
Her blanket tucked comfortably over her pretty ignorant head
Of the horror that lies just outside her comfy little bed
For she is paralyzed with fear
Do not be fooled
Here you lay
Not even the slightest disturbance stirring
There are a thousand bullets flying away
At this fragile little form so capable of shattering
And she tugs on the blanket with so much ease







Then she prays that her mother will return from the shadows



But alas not the slightest holler







A gunshot rings off, splitting the trees



And in the moon-lit night oh yes even she can see







The shadow of the night approaching with his aim pointing down



Onto her pretty little head about to end with one shout







There is a place where freedom is a word not pronounced
Not whispered, not prattled, and not even written for the curious eye to behold







No it is only a word screamed aloud in defiance







Of another defeated victim, fighting desperately for peace








But now they have been released to this place








The place we will all end up someday








Whether this is in vain or modesty








Triumph or defeat








That is up to us to complete









As we carve the words deep into stone









Let us remember that we all will visit this land




















An invincible soul staring curiously out into the world
Her diary and pen lying on the windowsill for everyone to read
Of a young girl who was so unimaginably trapped
Fending off fate
Where everyday looked as if it would collapse
Her mind so strong with its foundation
A heart that would always pound with hope even under the heaviest trepidation
So indestructible not even a Nazi could break
This young heroin of a girl, who inspired millions to break
To break free of a predicament however dreary it may appear
A new wind has blown and it’s opened up a clean page to you
To rectify the wrong doings of every mindless mistake
And not with guns, knives, no not even an ugly rebut
But with the dignity and spirit of your reasonable words and actions
Repelling off bullets without the slightest refraction


There is a land were we are not always so welcome
Where we are labeled as ‘’ indifferent’’ and are from then on deported
From this holy land of which we are all entailed
And we cannot help it if others wish to prevail
Of our entrance so unheard of it may be
This is the place our eyes are taken aback to see










This place we










We all want to be










So inspiring





So unbelievably free






















A woman who’s hand shakes on the empty table











Her lip quivers unbearably so











Her soul cries out to its suddenly- disappeared mate











Every phone call











Every letter











Every ring at the door











Brings the news of a best friend, husband, father











No more











And she pulls back the veil as she unwillingly sees










A dark shadow of sentiments











Coming to her door to tell
Of another honorable soldier who fought strong but ultimately fell






















There is a place












Whose borders are defended incredibly well



With every last breath, last word, last pulse ever pumped











Of a heart who died respectably saving us all











Of a place where we may prey never to be











Because here in this land we are undoubtedly free











Let us remember we may not all make it to this place











However challenging it may seem











We give thanks to the ones who will let it be






That we may all have the same chance to make it here












Where we are all free











This land









We all want to be









So uplifting









So unimaginably free
