Freedom isn't easy


Freedom of speech
Freedom of thought
are these the things
that you sought?

Freedom is what everyone wants
But Freedom looks at us and mocks
Only a few get what they wish for
they are the ones that soar like hawks

We all know that we have right
yet Freedoms looks at us with spite

We all want to say
what we wish today
we all wish to do what we desire
yet that is only what we can aspire

we all want to break free from our chains
to run away from our restrains

So work hard for Freedom
It isn't free like it says
work hard for Freedom
and look toward blissful days

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
