Freedom No Thanks - Poem by Not Long Left

If freedom of man comes at a price
bought by fear, intimidation and hate
I would think hard I would think twice
before it happens and its too late.

    I think it was Kafka who said something to the effect, 'It is because you have freedom that you are lost.'

    This is very insightful, Vincent. Thanks for sharing.

    The path to freedom may not
    always be found through the good
    but the alternative destination
    is slavery or servitude.
