I fear, Old One,
That in  your ignorance
You have confused fear
With respect.

I feel neither.
Rather, only anger,
At my freedom lost.
Odd...no, ironic, isn't it,
That what you fought in war to give,
You take away?

Or you try, anyway.
But I know freedom.
It is not something a country can give or possess.
Freedom comes from within.
You know not freedom,
For it is mine.
And when I leave,
As soon I must, lest my spirit die,
You, too, will be free.

Odd...no, ironic, isn't it,
That what you fought in war to give
I have the power to take away?
