Internal Freedom

Liberty has come

Our country celebrates

Our freedom today

 

Finding this freedom

We think that it’s external

Let’s give it some thought

 

It’s more important

What I do in private space

Than in the public

 

I train to listen

To the inner voice of hope

Not trusting feelings

 

Feelings come and go

Controlled by circumstances

My life is bigger

 

Awareness and space

Are secret keys to my life

Gifts I give to me

 

When I do not choose

And act without thinking

I find I suffer

And those around me, also

Suffer in ways that are sad

 

Our forefathers suffered here

Inwardly they sought freedom

They searched their soul for answers

That rose from within

 

They followed their dream

We stand today in freedom

Because they had the courage 

To give up their lives
