    Wise men search
    high & low seldon seek
    the gift of gold

    FREEDOM

    It's obvious we see
    life struggle through
    our history
    but freedom !
    where can it be

    our minds lay capside
    taken in the silly lies
    living in the beaten
    backside we hide from

    FREEDOM

    These starz above like glist grain of sand
    spilling , slipping through man's handz
    it was given upon today from yesterday's
    choices building this foundation for the
    weak and strong of generations long
    we like waves in a sea dying to break
    away to be free , splashing in hope
    singing these songs but not heard til
    we all come home in one mindset ability
    to unity maze from self struggling glaze
    and see what the wise men didn't seek
    that is our greater people freedom tree

    FREEDOM

    Inside this chamber i stand
    from the slumber of man
    ready to walk the mile
    to free the minds of stain brains
    born into the un-justice of thee
    time we the people become free

    pt.II next. :pc:

    I often ask myself about freedom,,,will it ever be? sometimes it feels like something always has a hold on us, from every angle...but let "freedom ring"
    nice drop rich, I'm already in thought of pt.2

    Freedom is yet to be
    Freedom is never free
    Freedom is all we want
    Freedom at any cost...

    RICH, this riff is for you.

    the goal of many
    as we become one and learn
    one day we shall see
    but the key is unity

    sounds like some black souls of poetry
    shouting through....enjoyed this to the fullest

    Peace
    Angel
