What Does Freedom Mean?

The following was written by Marisa Eve, when asked “What does freedom mean?” Marisa has given her life to working with orphaned children in Cambodia. The language is strong. It’s the truth.

“Being free means”
Free you see isn’t something I feel I can be
If I were free it would be so easy to leave
To ascend as a multidimensional being
To a higher state of consciousness
To return home
The realm where my soul was born
Wrapped in angelic arms
Before incarnating here
As a volunteer
This isn’t a vacation for me
I know my mission is to bring divine healing
To be the shift this world needs
The change society so desperately seeks
How lovely it would be
If love were the reason for everything
I’m dreamy
Dreaming of being free
Free from violence
Free from hate
If I were free I wouldn’t have to see
The world revolving around these two things
If I were free I wouldn’t have to be
Subjected to negativity
The degrading of innocent lives
Trafficked across border lines
To sacrifice their innocence in life
For some pedophile to fulfill a sexual fantasy
Children as slaves
Every single day
But this isn’t a problem the government sees
Just keep dropping bombs on innocent beings
Meanwhile modern day slavery is just down the street
We’re a sick society
Obsessed with followers and likes
All while a child of slavery’s life
Is spent looking into strangers eyes
Paying a cheap price to abuse them for life
Never knowing comfort and care
Night after night nightmares
Maybe they’re praying for someone like me
To crack down on society
To save them eventually
Prevent more victims from suffering
Oh how i’d love
To grab the government by the balls
Make them my bitch
So they know how it feels
To be forced to do something against their will
Get on your knees and surrender to me
Mouth taped shut unable to speak
Unable to scream
Unable to leave
Unable to be free
Let’s be the shift this world needs
Let’s stop making excuses for not doing
Where the hell are we all really going
When all is said and done
So freedom you see is different for me
I’ll never be free
Never truly see my dreams become reality
Because my dreams are seeing every innocent soul set free from slavery
Set free from wrongful convictions
Set free from persecution
So land of the free is a facade to me
And if the land of the free were home of the brave
We’d all be brave enough to be the change

    An eye-opener that so many of us take for granted the freedoms we have, just being born in America! Thanks for sharing, Sue!
