Treasure Island

Dave Alan Walker

(Pudsey, Leeds)

A Free World


Oh lord see me
tell me I'm still free
I see non existent chains
wrapped around me

In a world of opportunity
I thought we was free
but I have a feeling
some ones watching me

Oh lord save me
take all these eyes off of me
why is there no peace
in the land of the free

It seems to me
the only way anybody can be free
is if they are not breathing

    The only way one can be free is to be honest about life.
    We weave to many strings
    We tell to many selfish lies just to stay on top..
    I love this writing.
    Simple, far sighted and deep.
    Congrats

    Too right Dave, guess it will be onward going, invisible chains holding on to us, and a few very visible, such is life. (Report) Reply

    Well said Dave, it used to be a free country, but it seems that our freedom is being eroded away bit by bit, and slowly but surely. (Report) Reply

    I agree with you. Man is in chains everywhere. When shall we be free? Great write. Thanks for sharing (Report) Reply
