Freedom

Some days I fantasize about freedom with a craving that makes my palms sweaty and my mouth water. I look for one more chance. One more opportunity to cherish that which I felt I owned, yet gave away willingly. It was mine but I didn’t know what I had until it was snatched and strong-armed away by the law. The same “law” which convenient views the rules that govern we, as nothing more than words on paper for them.

FREEDOM. Could it be that freedom was kidnapped, or could it be that the physical aspects of freedom never belonged to us since the days we were bamboozled into believing that the Emancipation Proclamation actually granted us freedom.

Today, there are slaves of all kinds- black, brown and white. There is no difference, and please do not think so, even if just for a minute. We are all caught in the same web of deception.

When the chains come off will we then be free? Or will we continue to be placed under surveillance, our privacy invaded, our phones tapped, and our mail monitored?

FREEDOM from physical and psychological bondage. Prison is not what holds me hostage. It is the trickery and injustice of the system. Iron doors, metal fences, barbed wire, and gun towers are only what you see. What you do not see is the handicap of unemployment, the crippling dependence upon welfare and the many other disadvantages set forth when asked if ever convicted of a crime. Yet we arrest millions.

FREEDOM.
