Freedom Is Sacred

Poem Freedom Is Sacred
DEC 5, 2019 LISTEN

Freedom is sacred, he who brings it upon another man is a true messenger of the Divine

In the hearts and minds of the freed, his being shall forever and ever continue to shine

But oppression is wicked, and he who brings it upon another man commits a serious crime

In the courts of conscience, not even his precious dime is good enough to be called a fine

Freedom is sacred, he who violates it, before God and mankind, he has sinned

And those who are bound by the chains of such sinners must quickly be redeemed

Or else from the tears of the oppressed, the whole world will be flooded and drowned

For he who smiles at the cries of the oppressed sings for the evil rains to drown his own land

Even from far beyond the borders, once the rays of freedom starts to get blurred

Mankind should be warned that from the darkness of bondage no land will be spared

For once the selfish desire of one man to be the supreme master of another gets stirred

Even his own kith and kin must know that from his own accord it will not be quenched

An evil desire for one to wish to be the supreme master of another man is a dangerous fire

Which the good and wise men of the land must be quick enough to quench its wicked flames

Or else, they themselves, for as long as they live, guilty will spoil their souls like terrible stains

Because they will always live with the regret of failing to free another man from bondage’s chains

In every part of the world, regardless of the color of their skin, all the enslaved must be freed

For only then, shall mankind, in his coming in and in his going out, be totally relieved

Yes, indeed, from the chains of oppression, the mind, body and soul should be released

Or else, the essence of humanity, from the face of the earth, it will totally be erased

Whether they are young, old, single or married, in bondage, no living being should be buried

As such, from the graves of slavery and manipulation, a person’s divine being must be retrieved

And, any excuses for the justification of inferiority and superiority complex must be dismissed

Because everyone has a divine right to be here and thus our mutual existence must be embraced
