Freedom

Hold fast to your freedom
for if you let freedom go
life is like a beautiful river that has lost its flow

Freedom

Hold fast to your freedom
for if you let freedom die
life is like a Boeing 747 that cannot fly

Freedom

Should be cherished each day
for if you let it slip away
life’s bright skies will turn dull and gray

Freedom
