FREEDOM

 

Freedom is a door walking around

Eating grass without a sound

Freedom is a river where water flows

Were fishes swim

Where plants grow

You look at the stars and see they’re free

Like a flying bird to

A little bee

Freedom is not a human, it cannot be

But it’s many things

It’s many things just open your eyes

And you will see

From a plant growing up into a tree

From a captured bird being set free

Freedom is a lot, just look all around

It is just hidden somewhere waiting to be found
