Awaking to freedom

The need for freedom seems to be a human need.
Freedom is often used in demonstrations, in discussions, in ugly stand-offs, in signed papers.
But what is our present when we long for freedom?
What will be our future when we desire freedom?
Freedom from what?
Freedom to do what?

The South African poet Athol Williams wrote a few poems on this very topic of freedom. Read them here and reflect upon his thoughts.
