Freedom

charliewang 1950 (Montgomery)



Intangible to a heartless physical world having no purpose or intent.
desired by the man-child the last of the Homo from hominid's dent.
Seeing much of life he would deem as rude and very unfair.
Not knowing that he lives in a universe that has no thought to care.

From the single cell to pattern-seeking entities we have evolved to be.
In search of intangible freedom visualizing what eyes cannot see.
Witnessing pain and suffering begs to question from queries of why.
Assigning value and worth to exposures from ignorance with an alibi.

Violence's defeat one of many goals that he would define as freedom.
Misery and joy share the same space where exposures leave them.
Its hard compromising on freedom as it runs hiding not to be pinned.
Lucid as the wind without hue, raging in frustration from within.

The man-child wants to see freedom march in strides pure and sure.
Never realized there is a truth in the freedom that one must endure.
The universe is all-natural without purpose or intent or heart of cares
Freedom is found in evolving brains defined and polished waiting there.
