What is freedom?

Mon, 05/01/2017 - 23:30 -- Enen

America is great,

Full of perfect people,

Speaking perfect language.

 

They say speak child,

you are now free.

For here is America,

the land of opportunities.

 

So I speak.

But they don't understand.

What language must I speak,

for me to be free?

 

They say we all speak English here.

And so must you.

However I heard my peers

and these words aren't true.

 

Why is it so lonely

in a free country?

What is freedom 

in an integrated society?
