Freedom Song


If I was

to sing to you,

would you


Would you slowly

turn your head,

eyes to the floor,

then raise them

to meet mine?


Would I be able

to sustain the sound,

the clarity and purity

of my endeavour,

of my vision

for you, for me,

for our harmony,


so that we

could be

more free

than we

would be

if we were

on our own?


I smile and sing,

a simple song

of hope and future -


it melts your heart,

and finally,

you too now find

your voice.
