freedom Poem by Mitchell Long


I’ve seen a man
Walking by
He hears a man
He hears him cry
He searches for the words to say
He cries all through the night and day
I sing to you
These words of freedom
These are now your words to say
Tell the world that I am free
Free of man
Free of creed
Free of judgment
Free of greed
I say to you
What is freedom?
First you have to stand and say
What holds you down?
What holds you tight?
What makes you feel alone at night?
You’re insecure
You don’t control, you do not see
The key to freedom
Is to be free
