Fighting For Freedom

Age-old stories of coming to America

With nothing but minuscule amounts of money

To determine worth

And sell your soul.

How can you free yourself

From societal binds and pressures

Without first succumbing to them?

Monopolize your time

Build properties on your day to day life

And watch them come tumbling down

With every step forward that you make.

Has the patriarchy crushed you?

What about all the world’s woes?

When are we free

If we have done nothing to fight?

Lace your shoes tight

And fight with your sole-

Getting closer to your goal

Step by step.

 

Set Free

I have peace of mind

Being at peace with myself

After such a long time

Spent longing for forgiveness

When all along it was there

And I just needed to request it-

Ask and you shall receive

Repentance falling into your lap

I am forgiven-

At least forgotten-

But I’ve been released

I am free.
