Written By Ayanna Raj (Grade 8)
A free you, a free me
That’s the way it should be!
All of us are completely free
But what does that mean for you and me??
For some, doing away with slavery
Is the real meaning of liberty
For some, speaking their mind
Is the best freedom they can find
Some feel that a free nation
Is one with no discrimination
For some, it is the freedom to choose
To love, to marry or to lose
But for me, freedom is that power
That lets me be ‘me’ at any hour
Be ‘me’ when I want to sing or dance
Be ‘me’ when I want to dream or take a stance.
Be ‘me’ when I want to paint or sow
Be all of me and so much more.
