Poem Friday: What’s Happened to Our Freedom? 10/08/2010


What’s Happened to Our Freedom?

What has happened to those days when we were free?
To be all the things we want to be.

To do all the things we wanted to do,
Without all the rules that control you.

Those do gooders pretending to protect your life,
Supposed to make you safe, keep you from strife.

But what is going to happen when our life gets tough,
We are getting so used to being pampered, not handling the rough.

We have let them disarm us, make us weak,
We now are losing the right to speak.

The money we work for, we let them take Tax,
They even make us think its their right to take the Max.

We don’t even object or put up a real fight,
We just complain, and let them take another bite.

The freedom of taking initiative, being able to take a risk,
The choice is disappearing, fast, and brisk.

I cannot cut a tree on the property… I own without a permit,
I cannot fish… without a license I must submit.

I cannot ride my bicycle… without a hat,
Now we are strip searched at the airport, we all know about that.

I know some of you will be saying it is all for our good,
For me, I believe FREEDOM is now misunderstood.

We don’t even know what it is like to really be free.
We are so caught up in the ‘Money Tree.’

Afraid to lose our possessions, our purse,
That money has now become, to some a curse.

We have been spending like there is no tomorrow,
Now we must, yes must stop what we borrow.

So every time we have a new law, new tax, or new order,
If you don’t agree, get out of your box, object, and stretch your border.

Your freedom is precious you must defend it with all your might.
Pass on the freedom to you children, make it right.
