Not from the shackles of slavery
Not from the burden of sins,
Or the thirst for more than enough,

It is the liberation from futility
Years of chasing shadows
Has pushed me farther into the dark
I have lost myself and my soul,
I clawed at things that are not there.

Then! I heard the beatings of drums, from afar,
It pushed me out of my cave,
I shaded my eyes when I saw the
For the first time,I could see better
than I could in the dark,
This is what freedom feels like,
Now I am me and I am Free.

    Wish I could be free from it all,..
    From the world
    From caring
    From falsehood
    From ignorance
    From selfishness
    From life itself at times

    what is freedom?

    is it the freedom that allows nudity?
    the freedom that allows oppression?
    the freedom that allows corruption?
    the freedom that allows capitalism?

    what is the freedom?

    We clamor for freedom but when we get it, we must not misbehave or be an oppressor.

    In reality freedom is just an illusion.

    To me , freedom is only possible in the spiritual world especially when u are so close to God. Only FEW people will understand me…
