Freedom (When It Speaks!) - Poem by Eric Cockrell

freedom doesnt come in black or white,
doesnt always speak English,
doesnt like being lied to,
used, or bartered with....

is not a commodity on the highest shelf,
out of the reach of most....
is not concerned with owning,
and will not be owned....

freedom doesnt have any one religion,
is not capitalist, or communist!
freedom is often quiet, but when it speaks,
the whole world has to listen!

    Great thinking, Eric. Sound of freedom doesn't come from out side; it comes from within. one can not predict when, how and why it comes out. Thanks for sharing. (Report) Reply
