"And though she be but little, she is fierce."- Shakespeare


They say they fought for freedom

They say they bought us liberty

They say they died just for us

But I say, are we free?

 

It seems to me that we are slaves

Chained by lies and misery

Our feet caught in stocks of fear

Tell me how can we be free?

 

We must make a conscious effort

To change our state of mind

We must get rid of certain things

To rid of ropes that bind

 

To be or not to be

Since that is the question

We have to choose the way of freedom

Without any hesitation

 

To be free we must let go of

The hate

The anger

The fear

The pain

The indecison

We must let go

Then, and only then, can we be free
