You Cannot Tell Me! - Poem by Eric Cockrell


you cannot tell me
that freedom sees color,
religion, or financial status.

you cannot tell me
that freedom divides
between classes.

you cannot tell me
that freedom is for the few,
and not for the many.

you cannot tell me
that freedom can be bought,
sold, or traded.

you cannot tell me
that freedom can be won
by destroying innocent lives.

you cannot tell me
that freedom invades other countries
for political or economic reasons.

you cannot tell me
that freedom exists without justice.
you cannot tell me

that freedom is out of reach!
