Cry Freedom - Poem by Steph N. Janusz
Rage! Rage at the injustice done,
To our people at home, in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Rage at the ignorance and fear;
A chaplain recalled and denied transfer.
Rage! Rage at intolerance:
Our symbol denied issuance
on the gravestones of those
whom gave their lives for freedom.
Rage! Rage at religious bigotry:
Freedom of religion means freedom
for all religions,
in our constitution it is writ.
And when the rage is spent,
negativity is grounded,
and a calmer head you have,
cry. Cry for those whom deny you your chosen path.
Cry! Cry to the Mother for strength.
Cry for the ignorant and intolerant.
Then, march. Lift your head high!
And march! Physically or mentally to
the capital, do march. With candles lit,
let the light of knowledge shine. Drive
back the darkness of ignorance. March!
March with your brothers and sisters of all religions.
March with candles held high,
and cry, 'Freedom! '
