I Want My Freedom




I know this world isn’t a friendly place
any more
I know I am not here ‘cos I don’t belong any longer
I know this ain’t my own complaint, no, it’s not true
I know you all feel the same; all are of my view.

I want my freedom, I want a free world
I want to be there for the entire human race
I want the sun and wind to touch my face
I want the wide world to be a better place.

I want my music, I don’t want this noise
And this cacophony isn’t one of my joys
This petty fake piracy offends my freedom
I want my software free from officialdom

I want my freedom, I want a free world
I want to be there for the entire human race
I want the sun and wind to touch my face
I want the wide world to be a better place.

I want these killings to stop in our country
I want the world to stop this banditry
I want the bloodshed to end in your land
I want you to be free, please understand.

I want my freedom, I want a free world
I want to be there for the entire human race
I want the sun and wind to touch my face
I want the wide world to be a better place.

A stirring piece that for most people echoes their own wishes too. Thank you.

Nice one,

Also freedom is always from what we have even if what we have has been acquired painstakingly over a period of time :)

Freedom is such a relative term and is solely dependent on what, where and who you are born as! Society puts limits on freedom and questions anyone who crosses lines.
One is truly free only in ones mind...to the outside diplomacy and norms are a smarter way to live among people.

One's freedom is defined by one's own perception of boundries and Values.If you do not get yours on request then demanding is the only way!! I have written a poem on human emotions like pain ..Do read and give you valuble comments :)
