The Path to Liberty
I have realized fo rthe first time, the very first time;
That to seek my path is not a crime.
I could,I could, if I kept the faith, transform my sorrow into life.
Freedom, not happiness is the precious stone set amid all my strife.
I might live in pain, sorrow, and solitude forever.
If I lose my liberty, the chains that bind I will never sever.
If I keep the faith, I can do for others what I feel has never been done for me.
Then and only then will I truly see;
If I could give, I could live.
