Poet's Notes about The Poem

There's a freedom that only Christ can give
A freedom that allows the soul to live
Such freedom is not confined to the earth
It's one that comes by spiritual rebirth.

    Freedom- physical, economic, political and spiritual- is foremost and it cannot be bartered for anything in this world. Nicely conceptualized and presented. Thanks a lot. (Report)Reply

    Freedom is all what we require. In other words we call it autonomy. The poet is in need of Freedom to accomplish all what he wants. (Report)Reply

    If we could be free from the notion of freedom itself, then we would all truly be free (Report)Reply

    This poem shows how we as north Americans abuse freedom, and how it's been taken for granted. Now freedom is only seen as a means to get our own way. It has stop been the tool in which to set people free from oppression, but a stepping ladder for the oppressors and the bullies of the world. No longer dose freedom rain from the sky like a beautiful song; instead it's like a echo fading into the dark mists of yesterday. If there is to be a world like Mr. R Allen speaks of in his poem then freedom must be fought for, it must be sought, it must be taught, and most important of all it must be earned.

    P.S. You know whats sad about what I wrote? It would't inspire me to help anyone. I'm a hypocrite just like you. Aren't we fun creatures we could stay angry at someone forever, or even want to fight someone just because they implied that we were a hypocrite, but if we were to here that a little girl is being used as a sex slay, or a teen boy died because of a drug overdose we would forget about it in a week or even a day. Why are we as people so selfish, why! please someone tell me why?

    Good poem. Those in power only want us to have their definition of freedom. What is freedom? A very illusive thing BB =: OD (Report)Reply
