My emancipation lies not in international treaties
Where men occupy pretty tables
Discussing the fable
That is fundamental rights and freedoms.
I am free because
HE made me.
He is the reason I am made into being.
HIS lessons are not in what we lack
But what we readily have.
Holding tight and praying dear
My freedom is near.
HE has veined Creation that even through vanity we are one.
The seas have wept and mountains shook
When we have charged and punished
With more than what we have took.
We have seen herstory broken Dismembered and stolen.
For her lessons we must never learn
We have kept her bound.
And yet strangely, she has always been found.
See we can force, coerce, cajole and yet it isHIS hand that turns that circle.
I know I am free because GOD has spoken.
So lil man, sit down.
Theres no reason for your table.
Your fundamental rights and freedoms will always remain a fable.
I am Free because HE made me.
He is the reason I am made into being!
