    Naked to the world
    caught in the act, whoa.
    But don't feel bad, there was no way
    you were supposed to know
    that what appears to be private
    ain't
    and those who appear to uphold virtues
    cain't
    But don't you know
    this makes you free
    Free to truly flow
    Free to give em something to talk about,
    oh, wait a minute, they already are.
    Free then, to give them even more,
    Free to raise that bar
    Since they just gotta know.
    Cause big brother is watching all the time.
    Watch what information you give
    Never know whose gonna drop that dime.
    Big sister wants the 411
    Careful how you use those digits and your name
    A friend misusing personal info, is harder
    to forgive than a stranger doing the same.
    Though neither are to be trusted,
    you should thank them both. Why?
    Because they've freed you to the
    point where you can cry.
    They've brought you so far down to your
    knees, that you can't do anything but pray.
    But you should have been doing that
    anyway....
    They forced you into the right place at the right
    time for enlightenment, so you should say,
    Thankyou!
    See all the knowledge you can bring?
    Freedom is a beautiful thing.

    when I read this, I am reminded of the incredible drama of everyday life. there is no need for fiction. and on the freedom tip, it is the most precious gift. great read, watz.

    Truth is often stranger than fiction anyway, gempis. And yes, to be free is truly a glorious gift. Thank you so much for your appreciation.

    And sometimes like a tourniquet, Purplemoons, but hopefully buffering the pain none the less. Thanks.
    Caramelpython, you know I thought of using that phrase "cry freedom" in this piece, but changed my mind. Anyway, thanks for the support on this.

    Sister...all I can say is this was some DEEP VERSE...
    that fell...like a sledge hammer to my mind, heart and soul...
    Everything happens for a reason...
    and sometimes in the freedom of One...is the Freedom of Many, Many, Others...
    We don't always understand why things are brought to the light
    but when they are...sometimes they make us stronger...allowing us
    to be FREE...but it can only break us if we allow it too...

    Like I always say...Freedom is never Free...

    But if you don't run when it comes...sometimes you end up back in chains...
    "The Caged Mind...is a Terrible Place to be..."

    Sister...there is so much I could say because I hear so much in this peace...
    so I'll stop but know...this was TRULY PROFOUND...TRULY

    THANK YOU FOR STRIKING LIGHTENING IN MY SOUL AND MIND.... :bowdown:
