"Freedom"

By Jeremy D. John

When will we be free?
Never. . .

When will we be free from the persecution?
Not ever. . .

When will we be free from oppression?
At no time will we ever. . .

When will we be free from societal intolerance?
Never. . .

When will we be free from others discrimination?
Most likely never. . .

The only freedom we will ever find -
Is from within our own souls.
