Free speech is not important. Neither is freedom. Neither is free trade. Because we don’t need what we don’t have. Because God does not exist and wants us in chains. Because we are easier to direct when we don’t care where we are going. Because my parents didn’t really love each other and love isn’t what I need.
But sometimes, when the sun shines, after rain freely fell through gaps in the ceiling no one needed to fix. After freshly cut lawns and flowers release their fragrance. After couples stroll by freely holding hands and haltingly stop at shopping stalls, laugh and move on. I wonder if things will be different when I’m gone.
People tell me I shouldn’t smile and laugh at things. They tell me I’m too selfish and uncontrolled. My skin is the wrong colour, and people like me have too much. I should be glad being privileged. But will my loved ones know I loved them when I’m gone? Maybe I should say so. But how do I tell them if they are the wrong colour? Or privileged?
It is easy to say you hate. Shake the chain and curse the gatekeeper. But one needs freedom to tell of their love, and hope for the future. None of us is clean. But all have hope.
Because a world without God, is a world in need of God.
Just because I cannot sing does not mean I will not
I was raised as an Atheist. I learned, after reading the Bible, that God loves me, and you. This is his song for you too. He loves you, and wants to be with you.
All the elements are me and mine. ARIA ISRC number AUAWN1708120
