We Have the Freedom of Speech dont we?


The tide rolls out into the

Never ending sea of despair

Why must this be?

How can we be who we want to be?

If we are denied to speak

To act

To sing

To be a part of the flourish of life

What right does anyone have?

To deny us the right to speak

From our hearts

From our soul

Words are a paint brush on life

If you use them right

Words can be abound with imagination

Or stories untold

We express who we are

How we feel

Through living breathing words

It is who a poet is meant to be

Do not deny us that God given right

Let us be who ever we want to be

Let us speak in rhymes and words

I am a poet hear my words

We have the freedom of speech don’t we
