The Road to Freedom,
Is hard,
Hard enough, that many will fall,
Fall and stay down,
Thinking the effort is too much.
A man or woman who begins that road to freedom,
Will encounter intense failure,
But Never, Ever give up,
Although dissatisfaction is the cape,
Every seeker of Freedom must carry,
Don’t give up.
Dissatisfaction is only the emotive reaction,
Finding your spirit and realizing that…
The spirit you do not yet possess,
The quality of knowledge,
Only grew larger.
Grasp it tightly,
Use what you discover,
For knowledge is the Key…..
To Freedom.
I do not want power,
What I want, is Freedom.
Freedom to Seek,
Freedom to Think
Freedom to BE.
It is not happiness that gives real joy,
As happiness is fleeting.
Freedom gives true joy,
For I can reach for the stars,
If I am Free.
No man, can chain down my mind.
God has given me a mind.
He expects me to USE it.
Therefore, He released to me Freedom.
All I have to do….is take it.
All you have to do… take it.
