A Far Cry From Freedom – Written Monday 3rd May 2004 (Aged 29)

A Far Cry From Freedom

this is a far cry from freedom
this is a long way –
from a peaceful world
and every day,
a sad story is being told
this is a far cry from freedom
and it is too close to the cold
we have given away our hope
and then watched it dissolve
and every day,
a sad story is being told
this is a far cry from freedom
and yet, cry we do
for bloodshed and panic
are not so new
and hope, it is not so easy to mould
and every day,
it is such a sad story that is being told
this is a far cry from freedom




James Garratt – Monday 3rd May 2004
