Where’s the confusion?

It was a wise man who asked, “Am I my brother’s keeper?”
While searching for a suitable image for this post, I came across this. It’s a tad too religious for me but the truth is where you find it, isn’t it?

I was a stranger and you invited me in
I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink
But when you asked for something in return –
to be paid with my freedom, my spirit,
You know why I had to turn and walk back into the desert

I’d rather be hungry than imprisoned.
