Freedom

Freedom is a word that you hear a lot about,
but does anyone truly know
what freedom is all about?
Freedom is the liberty to make one’s own choices,
to have one’s own rights.
Whether it’s the independence of a nation,
or a child going out at night.
Freedom is something we take for granted,
in the U.S. of A.,
rights and choices given to us
to make use of in our own way.
Some people in America say that
our freedom has been limited,
we must fight for our own way,
yet in some countries,
they don’t have the freedoms
that we have every day.
Some nations don’t allow women to leave the home,
they are to clean, cook, adn take care of children,
if they talk back or speak out,
they could be beaten or killed,
if they refuse to obey.
The poor could be ruthlessly murdered,
adn it would not make a difference,
for in that society,
they have no significance.
Some people are put in jail,
just because of the color of their skin,
innocent people are murdered,
because of crimes they didn’t commit.
America is filled with freedom,
others with a severe shortage.
So the next time you claim to want more freedom,
think about the present,
and think about the past,
think about the people,
whose own freedom they do lack.
