Emancipation From Death

Emancipation by means of no other need than to have knowledge
to free one from life one shant have.
Trees filled with green leaves before the grave risising up
to exist in this life but like you to reach up to the sky.

For there is nothing to prevent the bearer of bad tiddings than death
to return in each life as that ray of light that is hope we excaped from.
Knowledge can be like the rain not unlike billions of drops
that light on the ground from which the tree has sprung from.
Is there not equal reason in this for the spark of life to go on?

Emancipation can not exist in the darkest recesses of some minds
where reason has fled due to fear.
Especially when there is equal reason to live free of fear from without.
One has the need to be free to learn the value of freedom you have.
If for no other reason to spread the knowledge all children need to survive.

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
