Act. - Poem by Frederick Francis

You are quiet until you are loud.
You are deaf until you hear.
You are blind until you see.
You are mute until you speak.
You are invisible until you stand out.
You are useless until you become valuable.
You are bad until you are good.
You are scared until you are fearless.
You are complacent until you are rebellious.
You are nothing until you are something.
You are you until you are me.
You are you until you are free.

    this is incredibly true
    really makes hopelessness seem pointless.
    I love it!
    especially the ending line.
