"You speak of free speech / As my freedoms die / But stick like a leech / Because I ask 'why?'"

Your Lock On My Liberty

Just who in the hell
Are you
To presume to tell
Me what to and not
To do?

I think you forgot
Just who
I am and you are
You brought on this war
And I ask "what for?"

As we watch your star
I hear destiny
For both you and me

They say you are great
I say you are not
I leave you to fate
Where hypocrites rot

You speak of free speech
As my freedoms die
But stick like a leech
Because I ask "why?"

Just go away now
Back under your rock
As I fight somehow
To destroy your lock
On my liberty:

Get away from me

Did destroy our faith in presidents and even may affect the future ones too. He has gotten us into all this mess and won't get us out. Leaving it for someone else. Glad you are still friends with your ex and glad you had such a nice day with your daughter and recreated trust and love for her. Such a nice thing to keep the treasures you collected within site. Your profound writes amaze me and who could not help but love such a nice fellow as you. Be positive and live life just as you are doing every day, It is getting you things so amazing you cannot believe them. Well done in all your writes, have many more to read before I give up.

Well said and I agree with you on this one, liberties are being lost, trampled on and made a mockery of almost daily and it is scary that so few of us are noticing it. Good write.

It is good to vent, Stevie; being honest is best. Well-expressed. Love and peace to you. Regis

Dear Steven ~ may you find your true love so that others will not feel you have imposed your liberty upon them against their own.

Politics is one that can separate friends and transform them into enemies. Sad indeed!
