    Freely Free

    by Suhavi Singh, grade 6

    Have you ever felt chained
    Even though you have Liberty

    Do you ever feel that no one is free, Until EVERYBODY's free?
    If you do, come along with me, I’ll show you the things you
    have never seen
    Come, into my factory
    Where everyone is Notoriously, Gloriously, Freely Free

    The recipe, to freely free, of course, starts with you and me.
    There are so many people on this Spree, but hidden, not
    Freely Free.

    Inside their heart, wanting peace, but not knowing, how to
    move their feet.
    Thinking, they’re too small to make a change, that is the
    biggest mistake one could make.
    Do you know what it takes
    Well, It’s for the World’s sake
    Come, to my house
    We’ll bake such a Cake
    Throw Violence in the trash
    The world ate enough of that
    This one shall be endless
    Generations and Generations shall remember the taste
    It shall keep on flourishing
    Until everybody knows the recipe
    Of Freely Free.
