Could You Be Truly Free? (Poem by Vinh Nguyen)

Just another poem I’d written thus far.  Enjoy!!!

Could you be truly free,
on the first day you born,
they called you a cute baby?

Could you be truly free,
while you spread your wings and flew,
knowing not a wing could break away?

Could you be truly free,
away from society, hiding in the wild,
knowing a hunter could become a prey?

Could you be truly free,
at the highest peak, nobody could reach,
yet you could not reach anybody?

Could you be truly free,
caring not for hearsay,
under the sun, hearsay found you?

Could you be truly free,
caring not for money,
free you thought, starving to death?

Could you be truly free,
as you turned away from love,
through loneliness, you became you?

Could you be truly free,
vices you had none,
but you could not deny you’re perfect?

Could you be truly free,
even in death you thought you could,
but could you tell me how free you were?
