LIBERTY

Do not they seek to make our minds but one,
That our thoughts are programmed all the same,
That freedom of speech never sees the sun,
In that Liberty is never thus in truth proclaimed?
Are not the Churches where dictators live,
Who condemn free thought for the process of their own,
Who take away what Liberty seeks to give,
For different thinking is not what they condone?
Liberty can live no where else but in the mind,
‘Tis there where truth is sought and truth is found,
For truth is the only Liberty you can find,
That lives not in nature or in conquered ground.
Our greatest freedom, Liberty resides in thought,
Expressed in words from the mind’s resort.
