My Freedom Day

Brian Kazungu



 Every day must be my freedom day, for why should I be bound?
 Why should fellow men think I am a product to trade?
 When in real life, we must all engage our skills and resources
 So that, together, we can bake and eat the bread of brotherhood
 Yes, every day is free to come and go, for the hands of time I cannot stop
 But slavery and human trafficking, the day must quickly drop them down
 Not as seeds that must pop and grow again
 But as dirt that must be flushed down the drain
 Yes, I remember and cherish well these words by Saint Augustine
 The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page
 But human trafficking and slavery is not the travelling he meant
 For surely, the spirit, body and soul must be free to go and see world
 Every day is its own day, but in it, my hopes and dreams should not rot and decay
 For I still deserve the freedom to try again and not to be detained by slavery
 For I still deserve the freedom to wash away the stain of my weakness
 For I still deserve the place, time and chance to showcase my giftedness
 Yes, every day, I deserve the freedom to choose even if from that I may lose
 Yes, I deserve the freedom to speak my mind even if I may seem behind
 I deserve the freedom to be me, I deserve the freedom to live than just to exist
 Indeed, every day must be a freedom day where freedom reigns everywhere we go
