Freedom Cry

in memory of the children of South Africa


Freedom!
Lifted out of the ashes and into a river of hope
A river of joy
A river of peace.

Cry freedom!

Freedom!

As a country dies
And children die because of
What they believe in

Cry freedom!

Freedom!

You jail them in your jails,
You murder them,
Torture them,
Burn their schools and home
But we still

Cry freedom!

Freedom!

You can do all these things
And make spoils of it
And yet tell them they are not free
But we will with all our hearts-

Cry freedom!

Freedom!

No matter the strife
Feeling powerless at times
When there is no power
But yet we will forever- -

Cry freedom!

Freedom!

You break us down
Break our spirits
But we forever

Cry freedom! !

Freedom is walking

It is spoken man is born equal and free
To a degree the world disagrees
Some foresee what others cannot see
Freedom is walking away with glee

We have a right to Christmas with a tree
We have a right to enjoy a shopping spree
We have a right to travel the land and the sea
We have the right to an educational degree

Stop the silly talking
Whilst Freedom is walking
Freedom is not a jubilee
Freedom is not a guarantee
Who says Freedom is free?

It is spoken man is free of thought
Without the need to fear higher courts
Some have spoken and finally resorted
To hide their thoughts from being reported

We have a right to a chosen culture
We have a right not to be tortured
We have a right to nationality and security
We have a right to be part of a minority

Stop the silly talking
Whilst Freedom is walking
Freedom is not part of community
Freedom is never an informality
Who says Freedom is immunity?

We want opinion without distinction
We want a world without discrimination
We want a kingdom of utter freedom
We want it in all shapes and form

Stop the silly talking
Whilst Freedom is walking
Stop the silly talking
Whilst Freedom is mocking

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”

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
