Without freedom
How can one feel safe?
Act with wisdom
Or become a slave

Noah pack up
While others jeered
Building was tough
But freedom neared

The pioneers
Left the known behind
Despite the tears
They’d freedom to find
What is security
And a comfortable life
Without liberty
And faith to help you strive

Those who would give up Essential Liberty
to purchase a little Temporary Safety,
deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.
