Fight

Chained

Whipped

Bleed

 

Trapped in unwritten rules

 

Glance

Peek

Don’t speak

 

Threaten by the powers of the above

 

Seek

Want

Need

 

Stolen truths are out of reach

 

Laws

Morals

Tea

 

Freedom of speech is what I seek

 

Here

Now

Present

 

A war is what they need

 

Greed

Money

Laundering

 

Stealing from their people

 

March

Shout

Speak

 

Bill of Rights is what we know

 

Blood

Tears

Dreams

 

We won’t stop

 

Silence

Breathe

Sing

 

Peace has been achieved

 

Awake

Repeat

Sleep

 

Fight until your rights are achieved

 

This poem is about: 
My country
Our world
