Freedom


I am free

I can eat what I want

I am not free

For I crave what I eat


I am free

I can drink when I want

I am not free

For the drink wants me


I am free

I can sleep where I want

I am not free

For I need a bed


I am free

I can work where I want

I am not free

For I need the money


I am free

I can bring up my children as I like

I am not free

For fear of their future grips me


I am free

I can pray where I want

I am not free

For my religion says I cannot


I am free

When I am free of all that binds me


I am free

When I am free of all that fazes me


I am free

When I am free of anything that repulses me


I am free

When I am free of anything that requires me


I am free
