FREEDOM IS FREE

                                                         Freedom is free

                                             He bribed his way to the top
                                       Bribed his way to the pinnacle of his dreams
                                                                                                             visions
                                                                                                                    passion
                                                                                                                                prayers

                              he silenced the voice of justice by the treasure in his pocket

                                     he bought the words out of those standing for truth-
                                                   they tried to utter but words failed them
                                        
                         he made of no effect the words of the enlightened 
                                            by the gold mine in his bank account

    but here he stands now
with every success life can kiss ones palm with

he stands boasting to bribe out of his way one last mountain:- freedom from guilt

now he stands, but hustling to bribe the voice from the dark gently whispering; Guilty! Guilty! Guilty! 

Now finally he stands confused-hoping to bribe his way to freedom from self-condemnation

                                     Light shines in his darkened understanding;
                                                            then he realizes:
                                       inner-freedom is free but who can buy it?
