Freedom Is Walking
FEB Faith Elizabeth Brigham (May 14,1953 / Pittsburgh, PA)

Freedom Is Walking

It is spoken man is born equal and free
To a degree the world disagrees
Some foresee what others cannot see
Freedom is walking away with glee

We have a right to Christmas with a tree
We have a right to enjoy a shopping spree
We have a right to travel the land and the sea
We have the right to an educational degree

Stop the silly talking
Whilst Freedom is walking
Freedom is not a jubilee
Freedom is not a guarantee
Who says Freedom is free?

It is spoken man is free of thought
Without the need to fear higher courts
Some have spoken and finally resorted
To hide their thoughts from being reported

We have a right to a chosen culture
We have a right not to be tortured
We have a right to nationality and security
We have a right to be part of a minority

Stop the silly talking
Whilst Freedom is walking
Freedom is not part of community
Freedom is never an informality
Who says Freedom is immunity?

We want opinion without distinction
We want a world without discrimination
We want a kingdom of utter freedom
We want it in all shapes and form

Stop the silly talking
Whilst Freedom is walking
Stop the silly talking
Whilst Freedom is mocking

I resent that sexist remark, Sid. Women ARE consistent in what they seek in a man. Only time may slowly change their ideals. The fact that we change our minds on other things has nothing to do with it. Some men just don't know WHAT they want and are forever changing, too. And I agree with Faith's poem, some men don't take women seriously. I will give Faith 10 because YOU have made me angry........very. Fran x
Men are at least consistant in what they seek in a woman.In general that is.Women have that subtle little trait that determines they change their minds not just every 10 seconds but with the moon, tides, time of the month and whether its the right color curtains to match that carpet.Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.Nice poem though.Subtle but THOUGHT PROVOKING.Ill give it 7 for getting me cross.
