What Is Freedom

What is freedom?
Can you give me the perfect definition?

I've heard them say,
That it's a feeling like none other.
Like feeling the wind in your hair,
Or better yet, flying in the air.

What is freedom?
Can you give me the perfect definition?

Is it a state of mind?
Or actually a state of being?
The chains and walls around my heart,
Are becoming to hard to bare.

What is freedom?
Can you give me a perfect definition?

I'm tired of crying these tears,
And no one ever knowing or understanding.
The puffiness in my eyes,
Is making it hard to see.

What is freedom?
Can you give me the perfect definition?

Someone hand me a Webster,
Or better yet, let me search Google.
They still can't define,
The freedom I search for.

Freedom is peace,
Piece of mind,
Joy,
Can someone now bring me freedom?
Or is it simply a state of mind?
