Treasure Island

Sandra Feldman


Freedom


The dearest word from which to start,
The most humane and finest part,
Of our existence

Without Freedom, what's ahead
Millions of Chains around our head
And thus Tyrannical Men spread
The seed of ignominious and disgraceful defeat
Of Liberty that they beat and steal from us
Leaving Her for dead, in a pool of our blood
With nothing fine nor human left within our heart.

    Without Freedom, what's ahead
    Millions of Chains around our head
    Many poets have sung the songs for breaking the barrier, kicking open the shackles and unchaining the souls.
    You have lent just another voice. Well expressed.
    Long live human freedom! Down with all forms of human subjugation! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
