What is Freedom?
Liberty is the bitter laws,
Choking you with restrictions.
What is Freedom?
A bullet,
War connects the poor and the rich,
Both battered, and tattered.
What is Freedom?
Doth the lady a crow.
For the body of the poor and the rich,
Both end the same.
Free.

What is Freedom?
A chain shackled to a pink home.
What is Freedom?
The ability to speak freely,
But sit censored.
What is Freedom?
An ebbing and flowing river only going in one direction.
Backwards.

What is your Freedom?
An idea as bold as equality for all.
What is your Freedom?
A history of cotton.
Of whooshing wind whipping, cracking on command.
What is your Freedom?
A penalty of death.
Innocent.

What is our Freedom?
Death.
Salvation.
Redemption.
