Midnights Voice

(November 3,1950 / Selma, Alabama)

Freedom


'Freedom' means you're willing
to give up all
'Want to be free? '
then give up your parents
your dog and cat
'Want to taste freedom? '
quit your job
burn your car
'Really free! '
give away your money
and your children
'Keep nothing! no possessions! '
obsessions...
no truths, no lies
no alibies
'Want to be complety free! '

Give up your life

everyone in someway is a slave or
they're not around to talk about it

    Freedom is nothing but in one way or other another name of slavery. We are all in a chain where there is no free-ness and nothing. (Report) Reply

    True- you're only free until you make your next decision and then you're committed. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

I speak not, I trace not, I breathe not thy name;
There is grief in the sound, there is guilt in the fame;
But the tear that now burns on my cheek may impart
