Freedom by H.K.

What is freedom?

Is freedom the ability to say whatever you want?

Is freedom the ability to go wherever you want?

 

To some, freedom is the ability to better themselves in any way.

To others, it is being able to do drugs, drink alcohol and have sex as much as they want.  

America is said to be the land of the free.

But is it?

 

Everyday you see people who are put in prison for minor offences

If a man steals a loaf of bread because he hasn’t eaten in 3 days

He loses the rest of his life in prison because of the system.

If a man on wall street steals millions and from innocent people nothing happens.

This is all in a system of freedom.

If that is freedom, it is freedom we don’t need .

 

To me, freedom is when no one feels afraid to do what they want.

To me, freedom is when we help those who need help and punish those who need punishment.

To me, freedom is being able to change myself and the world around.

To me, freedom is knowing that i matter in a substantial way.
