Why do I feel

Why do I feel
As others have
That lived
In harsh dictatorships

Why do I feel
As others have done
Who lived
In and out of freedom

Why do I feel
Like a fish reeled in
From the freedom of the sea
Onto a grey slab

Despite all the freedom
They say I have
Why do I feel
I don’t have any

Freedom is academic
It’s a document for a brain
Freedom is a political word game
For people to solve

Many are laughing as I write this
They laugh because they think they are free
But if we are free
Why do birds fly everywhere
And not we

I am interested in multimedia work: songwriting, art, and creative writing. I have been involved also in theatre and music performances.
