The Voice of Freedom

I was a slave
Living in silence 
But it was no life
Without words 
And a story to tell

I was a free woman
Bearing a message
Of hope and life
Sharing my story
With everyone 

I was enslaved
The suffering was so deep
The pain so much
I became numb
There was nothing else to lose
And I lost my voice

Only after I was set free
Released my own chains
My sensitivity was restored
I recognized the evil 
And was able to cry out
And begin to create the art within me

(Based on the teachings of Rabbi Joseph Soloveitchik and Rabbi Avraham Yitzchok Kook)
