Set yourself free

If other people want a way
To try to run your life their way
They really never will be free
While they are controlling me

Freedom means to give respect
To all the lives that intersect
It isn’t free to have to do
What other people tell you to

So before we rush to war
Let’s think what we are fighting for
The only thing that sets you free
Is giving that same right to me!

Author notes

Well that’s what it means to me anyway!
