Freedom Is Not Free - Poem by Roxanne Dubarry

No, Freedom is not Free,
Even in the, 'Land of
The Free and The Home
Of the Brave.'

When they take
Away Prayer in School,
Refuse to follow the
Golden Rule,
And Kick
Out Jesus Christ,
The Enemies of
Freedom are far from nice.

When the Ten Commandments
Are vanished from the public square,
The Enemies of Freedom
Do not Believe in playing fair.

When Military Chaplans
Are Censured in their
Prayers, is there anybody
Out there who truly cares?

When people are unjustly
imprissioned for their
relgious beliefs,
The enemies of Freedom
Do not care if loved
Ones weep!

When the IRS
Targets you
For your policts and beliefss,
Do not the Stars and Strips
Freely bleed!

We the Nation that defends
The Basic Freedoms on
Middle Eastrn Lands,
Deprieve our citzens
Of the Christian
And Jewish brotherhood
Of Man and Woman!

Verily, Verily the
Enemies of Freedom
Are every where!
Love in Christ Jesus!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

It is easier to write about what is wrong about a nation, than what is right about a nation.

    Infinitely great poem!

    We need the spirit of Jesus Christ to rule and reign on earth.
    So we can be free; and rightly! Prayer is a law of nature!
    It could change the world for the better. I myself could use
    more modeling of Jesus Christ, and, from his angel poets
    like you, for proper guidance in the writing of poems that
    suits his will; that we may achieve the great plan! Jesus
    is in us, as us, for us, beyond us; and for all beings! The
    Great Spirit or Holy Spirit of Jesus is the only reason we
    breathe and love and care and understand and....
    This is one of the most enlightening poems ever. The
    bitter truth and sweetly written with Christ's love (:

    Whatever be the scope of freedom all have, without faith nothing can be solved in this world of uncertainty! (Report) Reply
