Freedom (poem)

Freedom
     isn’t freedom 
          if it only fully applies to one. 
Freedom 
     isn’t freedom 
          if it favors one over others. 
Freedom 
     isn’t freedom 
          if it oppresses one to ensure the rights of another. 
Freedom 
     isn’t freedom 
          if it fears the full freedom of all others. 
Freedom 
     isn’t freedom 
          if it requires the subjugation of another.
Freedom 
     isn’t freedom 
          if it’s only freedom for some. 
Freedom 
     isn’t freedom 
          unless all are forever equally free.
