Soul Free

SOUL FREE
In Honor of Human Trafficking Day & Month
I am not a slave.
I do not need
to be freed
to be free.
– No one can own a soul.
I am not a slave.
Why should
I be shackled
to the name
of my keepers?
I am not a slave.
I cannot be
owned, rented
or leased.
I am not goods
or chattel.
I am not a slave.
I will not be
pigeonholed
or stereotyped
by Hollywood
or my own fears.
I am not a slave.
I will challenge
my tears
pledge allegiance
to the people
for which I stand.
– No one can own a soul that knows it is free.
