    freedom
    wat is it
    wat does it mean
    r we free wit
    the distance that separates our cities from our towns
    or ghettos from opportunities
    from wat if's
    from i should's
    all these limits
    that bring us down
    sectioning our minds into belief
    that all that ur able to find
    is all that u really need
    shortening our wants to venture
    to fine dine
    to make more that 5 dollars, a nickle and a dime
    working some fast food job
    like Mcdonalds.....
    these limits
    distances
    our imaginary boundaries
    do nuttin but decrease our desire for exploration
    all cuz they got us brainwashed into thinking
    that being black and dependant in the ghetto is coo....
    got us playin the role of the fool
    so well....
    so well...
    r we free...yet?
    am i freee if all around me
    r boundaries that only an expert
    in high jump can leap
    have we found freedom in life yet....
    yet?

    Flowing on with freedom. Yes, are we free if the fence is too high for us to escape... I am really liking this series on freedom, and the many dimensions of it you scribe.
