Isla McEwen poem “Freedom”

Freedom

by

Isla McEwen

 

 

 

Freedom can be anything you want it to be,

Freedom is the key,

Let your imagination inspire eternity,

Freedom is unleashing curiosity.

 

Freedom can be anything you want it to be,

CRASH! I’m out of jail free,

Freedom is how you make the perfect cup of tea,

Being able to do whatever pleases me.

 

Freedom can be anything you want it to be,

I think when you can be yourself,

Freedom breaking out of someone else,

Freedom is walking the earth being oneself.

 

Freedom can be anything you want it to be,

In 1821 the Greek rebellion took place,

Freedom is where you have your own space,

It’s when you’re free from almighty chase.

 

Freedom can be anything you want it to be,

You can furiously fight for freedom,

Freedom confronts boredom,

Freedom is escaping from ransom.

 

Freedom can be anything you want it to be,

What is really free?

Is it 60 million refugees as statistics see,

Or does it begin with you and me…
