Where is the Democracy in the absence of Freedom?
We were told there's freedom of speech;
Yet our words are being used to prosecute us in the court.
We've been told there's freedom of expressions;
Yet our feelings are being turned to break our spirits.
We thought we have our freedom of Religion;
Yet our alters have been leveled to ashes.
We even wished to use our freedom to breathe;
Yet our air has been filled with smoke and poisonous gases.
We thought we could enjoy our freedom to live;
Yet our homes were burnt down with terror.
Even now, our freedom to dream has been shattered by Nightmares;
All we have left now is the freedom of pains, heartbreaks and silent slow death.
What is Democracy without Freedom? ? ?
