Free - Poem by Devon McElveen

Am I free?
Free because I am not locked in a cage,
Because I hold my own ideas,
Because I possess my own will?

My ancestors knew the meaning…
They strived for it every day.
To them,
I am free;
But I do not feel this way

For it is hard to break chains
When they are attached to the roots…
