Freedom of speech
Our very first amendment
But the one that is squashed the most
If it’s first isn’t it the most important
We're not say,
Or impose on others religion,
Or silence others beliefs
Yet this is what is we do the most
Are you famous? No?
You’re not important so shush
Are you rich? No?
Are you pretty or handsome? No?
Then hush your voice
Are you young? What’s your number?
Younger than 18?
Then hush child, for you don’t understand
You don’t know the world like we do
As these people say this they stick up their noses
Cross their arms
Cutting us off
For we’re too young
And our problems are ours
Not important enough to be heard
But listen to their struggles
But you keep quiet because you’re just here for show
No, you can’t post that
No, you can’t say that
The thing about freedom of speech is
Expressing the truth
Expressing the true you
They don’t want to hear your cries
They don’t want to hear your suffering
Because deep down inside their pit of a heart
They feel it too
They know it
They see it
Heck they even do it
They don’t wanna hear it
They don’t wanna see it
They silence your truth
So you don’t unveil their demons
And expose their real truth
So they quiet our truths
Make us feel small
When we’re actually 10 foot tall
So I ask what’s your truth?
What’s freedom of speech to you?
What is it to me you may ask?
Freedom of speech is
It is your mind
And your soul
It’s your voice,
So the next time
Someone tries to silence that Freedom
Scream it if you have to be heard
But speak your freedom and your truth
And be released from the chains
Of society that hold you back
