FREEDOM FOR US ALL IS A CHOICE IN THE 21st CENTURY! (3765 hits)

FREEDOM FOR US ALL IS A CHOICE IN THE 21st CENTURY! by Joan E. Gosier
An excerpt from "Cotton Pickin' Paycheck-A 21st Century Journal of Escape from Slavery"

I cannot allow my gift to take a back seat
I cannot ignore this abundant feast
I cannot tell my heart to not beat
I cannot fake my joy and peace

I should not be a slave in this modern age
I should not think that I am a slave
I should not try to put myself in bondage
I should not clip my wings that God gave

When I see so much potential unfulfilled
When I see so much opportunity unclaimed
When I see so many others moving quickly ahead
When I see so much joy and peace instead

What can I do to help others to protect their brains?
What can I say to inspire them to see their way?
What can I do to help them unshackle their chains?
What can I say to inspire them to break free TODAY?

We all have so much to do to fulfill our purpose!
We all can contribute and invest in our futures!
We all have so much to offer our loved ones!
We all can have joy and peace in our lives.

WE CAN DO THIS!
