Joys Of Freedom

You cannot know the joy of freedom
until you lose it
until it is stripped from you
cut from your skin
in pieces
thrown away
trampled
by boots
strong feet
strong hands
heavy with gold.

You cannot know the joy of freedom
until you're forced to steal it back
cut it from the hands that hold it
pull it
hide it
just out of reach.

You cannot know the joy of freedom
until the battle is won
hard won
and years of fighting
have finally ground down
to the simple joys
of a simple life,
simple love
in a simple land.
