    WHAT IS FREEDOM

    How can one know
    For sure what freedom is

    If their only true deisre is to rule

    Regardless of

    Oppressor vs. oppressed

    If the mind state is the same

    Regardless of how it got that way
    The two of them actually compliment one another

    If both didn't have anything to rule upon end
    Then there would be no reason to fight

    Really it is only a battle of sexes made manifest

    The desire to be liberated
    Is only an acknowledgement that u value urself less

    And what is wealth but a mere self evaluation
    Either the wealth is urself
    Or the wealth is their money

    If that wasn't the truth
    You wouldn't want it so bad

    Him So bad his balls are blue
    Her so bad a she'll nourish ego until she doesn't exist

    Only denyin the true intent of their own
    manifested wish

    And the only rhetoric in dispute
    Is the erotic sound of more, more .. more

    I wanna come

    4

    Instant gratification

    You see missionary is a position
    On the bottom

    But I'm gonna ride the top
    And retain my feminity

    I found something that I like more then an orgasm

    And that is freedom

    Opressor vs. opressed

    That is your fight
    You found a place to fit in

    And me

    I found some pants
    That I'm trying to get in

    freedom is...

    Freedom
    Is the liberation of
    Mind
    Body
    A
    N
    D
    Soul
    From the bondage that holds me
    Controls me
    Won’t let go of me
    Even when I want to go
    And
    “Massah please”
    Is the only thing that sets me free
    Coz freedom ain’t free
    In this land of
    liberty

    As I sit on my mountain top

    I drop
    Words of wisdom
    To satisfy my “ism”
    While praying for strength
    To make it through each day

    I say
    “Thank you, Father”
    Every morning I rise
    Did away with the lies
    And for every pain I caused
    I apologized

    I broke the bonds that held me
    Vanquished…The dreams that failed me
    Held the hand of the hurt that dwells inside me
    …That deprived me of happiness promised me

    What is freedom?

    It is my ability to say
    I AM FREE
    (to be me)
    AND BE​
