Freedom, Come To Me
Here where I live in this world of chains,
I shout loud for my most wanted necessity!
Here, as I am bound by my reigns,
I scream for my one wish—my one and only!
I shout out to the blue sky,
"Let me go free! My world let me wonder!
Let my try and make my history!
Let me fly over the clear skies and yonder!"
And with extreme passion, I am freer!
Into the depths I want to be free to dive!
I vow not to be a lowly prisoner—
I vow not within chains to live!
In false ideas I refuse to believe
That if I concede, I will have my way?!
No! Yet over my prison I do grieve—
I vow! I shall break out of here someday!
And my hopeless dream that flew away
I will find it—I will!— and once again make it mine!
There will come a time—I will have my say!
I will—eventually—break out of the prison's lines!
My captors, do watch my signs
Someday I'll have my dream—someday I'll be free!
And on regret, you all shall dine
When the world hears my shout—freedom, come to me!
