A Poem by B.E. Gonzales

This poem is narrated by Liberty, who is the inspiration of heroes, the song of the imprisoned and the cry of the people.


My arms stretch out and open up to the poor

The weary, the oppressed and those who yearn to be free

To them, I open the door

Of the Promised Land where they will find me


I raise my head and look up to the sky

She glorifies equality and righteousness

I push my feet to the ground, where I hear blood cry

The blood of the people, where in the battlefields, found happiness


To those who flee their lands where wickedness is exalted

Where oppression is glorified and evil reigns

I will be their shelter and they will be provided

I will relieve them from all their pains


My name is Liberty

I dwell in the songs of people wrongly tried

And the people who, in the hands of tyrants, have suffered greatly

I will reach to them and be their guide

A powerful poem. Liberty is a powerful word. I wish the people of this world would revolt and tell the leaders of this world. Time for peace, please. A excellent poem.

This is so lifting and strong, personifying Liberty as the one who guides the oppressed to safety and security... who guides them home... Beautiful and moving!
