What Is To Be Free


To be free is to dream
And to think about all of
Life’s possibilities.

To be free is to soar
Through the air to the
Greatest heights like an eagle.

To be free is to move
Like water through mountains’ tops
And streams with no resistances

To be free is to fight for
Equal justice, rights, respect

This is what it means
to be free…
