If I told you I wanted to
Be free would you believe
Me from a lifetime of
Misery of observing
Not what others have
Done not to me but the
Unwillingness to let
Others be for I see
The tears in their eyes
And truly it bothers
Me
If I told you I wanted to
Be free could you help
Just possibly and hold
Out your hand and help
Someone stand so they
To could see past the
Shadows of life passing
By so they could look
Upon a reflection and
Recognise it as I
If I told you I wanted to
Be free
