Fool In The Hill

Freedom is yours…Freedom is yours…
Bougainville, freedom is ours.
A lone mountain frog croaks:
‘German, American ocean submarine bringing you guns and bullets
At Marau beach…’
Freedom is yours…Freedom is yours…
Bougainville, freedom is ours.
A lone mountain frog, calls:
‘Money is raining in Siwai and into Kieta. Give money and grow
Your beloved, Meekamui. Money is raining.’
Freedom is yours…Freedom is yours…
Bougainville, freedom is ours.
A lone mountain frog screams:
‘Siwai, give us money…But, Siwai laughs and snores off…’
He looks for Kongara,
But, Kongara is gone…so jumps into his pit
To rests in oblivion.
Freedom is yours…Freedom is yours…
Bougainville, freedom is ours

War + Lives add Love = Freedom

Remembered

A nation born from war, for the “purpose” of establishing freedom
A nation divided in war, in an “attempt” to fulfill the goal of freedom

A nation engaged in world wars, in the task of “preserving” freedom
A nation policing the world, in the “pursuit” of freedom

So many young lives have been lost, for the “cause” of freedom
Let us remember those who paid the “ultimate price, ” for freedom

And dear God, please tell us! - “What! ” - is freedom?


We need not war

We need not war, to show us how freedom is made
What we need is love to show us how freedom is played.
For freedom is not - but to “do as we please”
But rather, to “please others, ” because of what we achieve.


No such thing!

There is no such passion as hate, - only - a mental state
Of ignorance
For what we fail to understand, from our source of knowledge
We choose the accepted norm of utter indifference
Therefore, our feelings of love, we profoundly fear to acknowledge


“Freedom” is to serve

“To serve requires love; only with love, do we obtain freedom”

Veterans Day

The other day Deborah and I were discussing the wonders in America we can see.
We realized how lucky we were to live in a land where we were free.

A land where freedom allows us to come and go as we please
Where we are afforded the ability to travel around with ease

It made me wonder about freedom and what that word entails
From the many different forms it takes to the miracles it unveils.

V- Freedom is not Voluntary in this or any land
It is the right of every individual...something to demand.

E- Freedom, true freedom, when all is said and done
Enhances and respects the freedoms of Everyone.

T- Freedom is Tolerant of others and unequivocally embraces
The differences between us that tyranny erases.

E- Freedom is what we pray for at the bedside of every birth
For freedom, as Abe Lincoln knew, is the last best hope on Earth.

T- Freedom must Radiate from each of us, it’s a song the world must sing
From every bell in every church freedom’s message should always ring.

A- Freedom derives from Action, it should be the goal of you and me
That every person in this world can say with confidence, “I am free.”

N- And though most of us in this country know freedom and feel blessed
We must remember No one is truly free when others are oppressed.

S- Finally freedom is Spiritual, it truly make a person whole
When the freedom in their heart matches the freedom in their soul.

Today we celebrate Veterans, it’s a day to formally address
And thank the veterans for the freedoms all Americans possess.

Ah, but freedom is a curious thing...as many with freedom have forgot
That either everyone on Earth is free...or everyone is not.

So we pray for the day people everywhere will come and go as they please
That they’ll be afforded the ability to travel around with ease

We pray that someday in every corner of our planet freedom will be on display
But until then be thankful for the freedoms we have...and thank a veteran today.

Freedom?

They say I have freedom
I can do what I want
They say I have freedom
To speak how I feel

But how is it freedom
To be judged for my deeds
And persecuted for speaking
Revealing my thoughts

How is it freedom
To fear being called strange
To think different thoughts
To the people you call friends

I live in my mind
I hide in my brain
I don't dare to speak out again
And I'm free to be lonely
And misunderstood
I'm free to be hated and shunned

This is the freedom
This is not freedom
It cannot be freedom
To hide from the world
