Explanation:

In this passage Olaudah Equiano asks a question that who could do justice to her feelings of  freedom when the heroes have won a war. She tells that she cannot ask the heroes of the war  who have just won or the motherland who has finally gained freedom.

She cannot even ask the  sailor who has not seen the port for a long time. She cannot ask her lover because she has  been separated from her lover. She was not feeling well and was in a confused state of mind.
