To be free is to be able to live as I choose;
To decide who I am;
To decide who to love and be allowed
To marry my choice.
To be free is to be able to plan
How to build my future;
To educate myself where I choose
And in what field without restriction;
To choose when, how and how many
Children to bear.
To be free is to do as I please
And go where I will
Regardless of the color of my skin,
The religion I choose or lack thereof,
Or the origin of my heritage;
To not be judged and restricted for these choices.
If we allow regulation of our personal choices
We are not free.
