This is a Free Country

by Trudy A. Martinez
Because that is so,
I have a right to my view,
And you have a right to yours.
Because I am free,
We agree to disagree,
And debate to no avail.
Because that is so,
It is my decision to lean-to or fro,
To the right or to the left
Or somewhere in between.
Freedom reigns,
But when I leave this world
The destination,
whether it be heaven or hell,
Is neither your decision nor mine.
As that decision and destination
Is predestined and determined
by someone else!
