FIRES OF FREEDOM
“ I am a bird that struggles to get out of this cage. Its been long enough that my existence has been purely for the amusement of my captor; Today I will fly — out of this cage even if it means a severed wing — I will fly!
And I know that when I go out there, the world might disappoint me. I have long witnessed people burning the flags of others in the name of waving their’s. With every flutter of my wings I will douse those fires before I douse my own.
So, will you, will you help me put out these fires; will you fly with me? “
If you believe discrimination exists, it will. This Independence Day, let’s pledge to fight for freedom of ideals and expression. Let’s make the world how it was meant to be, Cause we are all in this together.
This project is an attempt to tell the world that if you walk out of the frame and mix the colors of discriminations that you think supposedly exist, The whole picture is beautiful, How it was meant to be.
And to discriminate only generates hate
And when you hate then you’re bound to get irate, yeah
Madness is what you demonstrate
And that’s exactly how anger works and operates
Man, you gotta have love just to set it straight
Take control of your mind and meditate
Let your soul gravitate to the love, y’all, y’all.

Every woman, every man must have the same right to choose
We need equal rights an gender equality
For the whole world can see the prosperity and peace
that it brings. It´s the key to humanity.

Where your blood comes from
Is were your space is
I’ve seen the bright get duller
I’m not going to spend my life being a color
Don’t tell me you agree with me
When I saw you kicking dirt in my eye
But, if you’re thinkin’ about my baby
It don’t matter if you’re black or white
I said if you’re thinkin’ of being my baby
It don’t matter if you’re black or white.
- Black or White : Michael Jackson
This morning I woke up in a curfew
O God, I was a prisoner too, yeah!
Could not recognize the faces standing over me
They were all dressed in uniforms of brutality, eh!
How many rivers do we have to cross
Before we can talk to the boss? Eh!
All that we got, it seems we have lost
We must have really paid the cost
- Burnin’ And Lootin’ : Bob Marley
Papa I don’t need a preacher
I ain’t some kind of creature
From some old double feature
I just want to make you proud
Of the kind of love I’ve found
But you say it ain’t allowed
Say that its a sin
But it’s how I’ve always been
Did you love me when he was just my friend?
- Heaven Sent : Parker Millsap
Happy Independence Day.
