To be free

Freedom trained

A freedom ride

Rode to the next stop

Not guaranteed to be free

No constitutional mandate

Protecting the looseness

No more nooses

Of those not allowed

Even when the law said “not to be” aloud

They did not fool my parents or their legacy forward

With those yet to be

Should it be as they say

Freedom is not, cannot, will not be free

But I say

It is a coming

Just watch and see
