    I'll Take Ah__

    There's choices in the human race

    which  every soul must make

    Whether to be free or to be oppressed

    Freedom is the reward for struggle

    Oppression is compensation for apathy

    either way there’s a price to be paid.

    Without bloodshed there is no struggle

    Without struggle there is no progress

    Without progress there is no freedom

    When there is no struggle for freedom

    Oppression is the only option left,

    An even higher price to be paid

    With oppression comes aggression

    Against the spirit and the soul

    With never any room for growth

    forever deprived of opportunity

    Which to accept;  a conscious choice

    Bloodshed in the  struggle for freedom

     or blood sweat and tears in apathy.

    Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.
