Poem: Freedom

I searched for freedom where it is forbidden to think freely

It is my mind, heart and soul wanting to be free

Every human yearns for freedom

yet we are caged and held back because we are deemed as dangerous

Dangerous for my country, for my people and for peace


I wonder how it is outside these walls surrounding me

It has been a long time breathing in fresh air

Life in here passes by only slowly

I miss you

I miss my home and my children


These grey walls made me realize that

freedom is being able to go home after work

Freedom is being able to hold my children

Mister, I am not danger to you or anyone

Please, let me live freely again
