Freedom From Fear - Poem by Francis Duggan

'Tis not about your Country's Government or your National flag
Though these things you may feel are well worthy of a brag
Though patriotism and true freedom in distance far apart
As reality is from an affair of the heart
When you talk of freedom are you telling me
That you as a person are totally free
To walk where you want to without the slightest fear
That danger to you might be lurking quite near
On a moonless night in the semi dark
Do you feel quite safe as you walk in the park
Without fear of being knocked to the ground from a physical attack
Or even far worse than that a knife in your back
Of love of freedom and Country and your Country's flag you may sing
But of freedom from fear there is no such a thing.
