I came across an instrumental version of a 70s song called “Una Paloma Blanca” which I learnt to sing when I was in primary school, if I remember correctly. I googled the lyrics and found it meaningful as I realised the song is about living in freedom, which no one can take away.

“When the sun shines on the mountains
And the night is on the run
It’s a new day, it’s a new way
And I fly up to the sun

I can feel the morning sunlight
I can smell the new-born hay
I can hear God’s voices calling
From my golden sky-light way

Una paloma blanca
I’m just a bird in the sky
Una paloma blanca
Over the mountain I fly
No one can take my freedom away”
