I am a " free man " living within a secular world of restriction,
A realm in which my rights are constantly under constriction,
New rules, amendments to old laws, every day less free,
They want to control our lives, they hope we will not see.
They have power over our freedoms, but not our secretive mind,
Deep in our thoughts, and hidden away where they can never find,
Lies the freedom of our expression that cannot be controlled,
Something they cannot buy, something that should not be sold.
They are throwing a shroud of darkness over all of human kind,
But in this blinding darkness, a bright light of freedom you will find,
Freedom of religion, of free thought, and of course of free speech,
Rights emblazoned so deep in our hearts, that no one can breach !
