Poetic Thoughts header

Oppressed / Freedom
I have lived in some very poor neighborhoods. In each of these neighborhoods I have always noticed the resiliency of certain Souls living there. Souls which exude Love and peace despite a difficult environment. This poem is for those souls:

Poem For The Oppressed

Some
of the most
oppressed people
I have ever known
were also the
most religious people
I have ever known.
They were politically
and economically
oppressed, but their
hearts and minds
were free.
They were free enough
to get out of their
own egos
and Love others
without restraint.
This poem is for
the oppressed
who are truly free.
