Free as a bird with the horizon in sight

Free as a shark unaware of her might

Free as a pigeon with one scabby leg

Disabled and limited

But never defeated


Free as water flowing downstream

Free as sun rays making all gleam

Free as a meteorite hurtling towards earth

Causing mass strife

For a beautiful new life

No more arrows stinging back

Shackles now rusted split with a crack

Once weighed down

Thinking you’d drown

No more

Not now

Because you’re free

A beautiful new life

Now that you’re free

Suggested audio: The Flying Song by PQM
