False Freedoms

Independence
is a gift
reserved for the very few

And freedom
is a myth
for the masses

Your differences
make you a target
a false name
an object

But you swim
against currents
and against tides

Seeking a goddess
only you sense
free to be solitary

Living in false freedom
until your skin
your shape
your love
and your sex
are no longer a weapon
to crush your spirit

Until America
means freedom
for everyone of her children ~ Caroline A. Slee
