Born of Liberty

O Liberty, you are the treasure that men pine for

you instill dreams of hope and visions of new life

in your name, people give away all they have

roaming through a desert of despair to hear your euphonious melody


Liberty, you thrust us into power and peril

infusing us with strength to overthrow fear and tyranny

but weakening our resolve in stunting, nestling harms

a dichotomy of wills that we struggle to preserve


Liberty, you give us the ultimate choice

We are masters of our destinies and fortune

yet in abundance we become slaves to our passions

and pawns of the chains, born in liberty
