I Speak

Source

I speak of freedom, compassion and peace,


You speak of control, hate and ignorance


I speak of equality and tolerance,


You speak of war and death


I speak because I want to make a difference,


You speak because you're afraid of change


I speak because I am tired of not being heard,


You speak because you like the sound of your own voice


I speak because I am tired of hearing my voice does not matter,


You speak because your the one who tells me it doesn't


I say what is on my mind no matter what it is,


You say what they tell you to say like your reading a script


I love people in general,


You love You and only you.

I would imagine a good majority of the youth feels this way as well as many disillusioned americans watching our rights being taken away. Thanks for the great poem.
