Free?

I tried to figure out what was free
Being born, but then I pay with my life
.
Listening to music?
No, I just pay with my time
.
Maybe the lunch my friend bought me
No, I know she going to expect something
.
How about the buy one get one “free”
No, I have to pay for the first one so it’s more like half price
.
Thought they could cheat me
Well, I don’t believe so easy
.
Everything I ever buy
They tax
.
Everything I want
They aren’t needs
.
To get that beauty
I pay with pain
.
To get that laughter
I pay with thoughts
.
To be happy
I pay with love
.
To be sad
I pay with tears
.
To be angry
I pay with fear
.
To be me
I pay with my mind
.
To live free
We pay with our lives
.
I guess freedom is something we lack
Cause nothing in this word is free…
But, some argue with “the air we breathe”
.
Well, that’s fine I'm not going to argue back
Cause I know the one thing that’s never free is time…
And I wont let you waste mine
