Oh, What It Is to Live in A Free State!

Spread the love

I thank the Lord for the blessing of living in one of the free statesΒ 

The states in which there are no restrictions nor silly mandates

Where we still have respect for The Lord, the law, and our fellow man

Where humanity still remains intact and we give each other a helping hand

We dance, we sing and we shout making a loud and joyful noise

Smiling as we hold our heads up high and walk with purpose and poise

We remain ungagged and have freedom to come, do, and go as we please

Yes, we’re blessed because we’re prosperous, happy, peaceful and free

Our hearts, they sing the patriotic song “My Country Tis of Thee”

We rejoice at our backyard barbecues and parties with family and friends

We make it an point to hug, pat each other on the back and shake hands

We live our lives relaxed and at peace thumbing our noses at the tyrants

We work, we play because we know they’ll never extinguish our vibranceΒ 

We dance together, We sing together, we mix and we mingle

We talk, we laugh, we eat out, we date, and our church bells jingle

Red, Yellow, Black, and White we all come together and unite

The togetherness we all share is their failure to distinguish our light

Our fire burns bright what a blessing it is to live in our part of the world

In our part of the country only happiness, peace and prosperity can unfurl

We preserve our autonomy over our bodies joyfully and without a care

Of the tyrants’ evil master plan we have been long made fully aware

Popular Sovereignty is the shield that protects us from their tyranny

It allows each individual state to preserve their peace, freedoms, and liberty

We smile as we watch the DC tyrants contort and seethe with anger and hate

Oh, what it is to live freely to thrive and flourish in a free state!

    This is the first piece of poetry I’ve read of yours, and it’s excellent. I really enjoyed and appreciated your words. You have so much value and knowledge to offer the world and the people who read your blog. I’m so glad I found you. I’m also very grateful that I live in a free country too (in the UK).

    Great poem. Indiana is also a free state. We followed the recommendations at first until we figured out it was a manipulation. Thee we went about our business the way we always did before all the mandates.

      Thank you so much! Tennessee is also a free state and we did the same at first. It didn’t take us long to wise up to their manipulation and attempts to control our lives, so we decided we wouldn’t comply and we’d do what we wanted. Kudos to your state, Molly! Know that Tennessee stands with Indiana! πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ

    I think what makes me even more sad and angry than Captain Hair Gel and his elitist band of tyrants is the fact that people here actually want that, that people want to be slaves to the government.

    • cheriewhite says:

      It’s leaves you flabbergasted, doesn’t it! I’m like you, I don’t understand it. But! These people are, thankfully, in the minority! Most Americans see right through this crap and they’re pushing back against it!

      • Greg Dennison says:

        They aren’t in the minority here. That’s the problem. I really don’t want Civil War II, but I wonder if that, or at best a peaceful dissolution of the USA, is the only solution.

            I’m not in Chicago… I’ve told you in an email before where I’m from, I try not to say it publicly on WordPress for the same reason you don’t say where Oakley really is… But I’m sure it’s the same way as Chicago. πŸ™‚

            (I guess “Captain Hair Gel” isn’t a very recognizable nickname outside of his state… I kind of made it up, although the hair gel is something a lot of detractors like to point out about him)

          • cheriewhite says:

            Oh, gotcha! Please forgive me, Greg. I got you mixed up with another blogger! Now I get the Captain Hair Gel- Newsom! Hahahahaha! I love that you call him that!

            Unfortunately, he’s only facing token opposition this year and will probably cruise easily to reelection. Enough petitions were signed to force a recall election last year, which he easily survived, so the opposition is mostly focusing on Congressional races this year.

    Cherie, very aptly put my friend. πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ You know, when we think of the land of the free, we see so much craziness that we ordinary folks have such a big price to pay for freedom. To write into law a certain word that you cannot say or to try to rewrite history, which is impossible to do, drives you crazy. I think we have lost our sense of civility and respect. Hopefully, that minority where unrest grows, wherever that may be and with whoever these individuals are, will not bleed into contaminating the minds and spirits of those of us who root for peace. Now this part of your message I love:

    We talk, we laugh, we eat out, we date, and our church bells jingle
    Red, Yellow, Black, and White we all come together and unite
    The togetherness we all share is their failure to distinguish our light

    You are so right girlfriend, they cannot extinguish our light unless we give them our permission. Great post girlfriend! Thanks for much for sharing our pursuit of happiness. πŸ˜πŸ™πŸΌπŸ₯³πŸ’‹πŸŒžβœ¨πŸ˜˜πŸ¦‹πŸ€—πŸ’

    • cheriewhite says:

      You’re so right, girl! They can’t unless we allow it! And sadly, so many of our young people are falling on their faces… right into their traps!

      ” To write into law a certain word that you cannot say or to try to rewrite history, which is impossible to do, drives you crazy.” – Girrrl, you said that perfectly! And here’s my take on it, if we forget our past mistakes, we are bound to repeat them. And they should know that (And I think they already do). It’s sad!

    I live in the corrupt state of New York. The same state that sent more boys than anyone in the North to fight and die in the Civil War. Even back then Albany and every place south of it were corruption hotbeds. Upstate is totally different. I hate that our historically rural free part of the state is controlled by sickos. But there are pockets like where I live where people do their best to live free. The church I go to fought alongside the Hassidic Jewish community in NYC to remain open during the lockdown and won. Great poem!

    • cheriewhite says:

      Thank you so much, Adrienne! πŸ’– My heart goes out to you and every person in New York. You’ve been through granny-killer Cuomo and now you have Hochel. I just can’t imagine what you guys are going through. Know that you’re all in our thoughts and prayers.

      I’m so glad you and your community stood up to those psychopaths and defeated the oppressive lockdowns. Know that we cheer with you! πŸ’–πŸŒΊπŸŒ·πŸ¦‹

    Love this poem.❀ I live in a ‘free state’ as well. Both mentally and physically. 🌞 I’m located in Idaho where many Californians are relocating. Great. But they can check their politics at the state line. πŸ‘
