Freedom's Not Free

June 15, 2011
Freedom's not free,
and life's not lively,
if you don't know how to live it right.

Peace isn't peaceful,
when beneath all the calm,
we're screaming.

Love's not lovely,
and hungry's not starving,
if you eat everyday.

Faith isn't faithful,
when you only pray on Sunday,
and sin every other day.

Humanity's not human,
and falling's not falling,
if you know you'll land safely.

Lovely! Good point, and nice flow of words. The only thing was, I didn't quite understand the meaning of the 3rd verse...
