What is freedom
For you and me?
Is it a privilege or
A sense of royalty?

Is it something like
Ornaments and clothes?
That can be bought
With stack of notes

Is it something
In a fairy-tale,
Which many want
But tend to fail?

Is it something
Like the moving air
Which we can’t see or feel
But all can share?

What does freedom really mean
for you and me?
It is not just a privilege
Nor a sense of royalty

It is not a festivity bonus
Or any fringe benefit
Drawn against any deposit
It is rather a birthright
For which we fight
