Poetry By: Luvving

When the right to say what you will comes under attack, do you continue to speak your mind?

I've seen many a man and woman, criticized, ostracized

In this world a bin of sin

They have argued points of reason, never backing down on what they believe in.

Those who hate the words of truth and wisdom, say he who speaks out are doomed.

Others will applaud their stance, to say the things that the weak heart wont.

They are the fighters of society, who strive for what they


They have their hearts of gold, and they will fight for the


Trying to make their reason heard, is like surviving the


The hypocrites want to tear them down, but to the last the

War is fought.

Government officials, controlling the people, know that time is running out

There's anarchy, a revolution, that is right in their backyard

So the people speak out about the fears they have

They're silenced through lies, and analyzed

Ignored by the law of the land, and treated as bitter folk


Oh some places fight their civil wars, because no one

hears their voice.

The voices of reason are hunted down, and sometimes they

are silenced.

Those in control, they cover up the lawlessness they have


But he who is fighting for the underdog, will one day raise

Their arms in triumph!
