A poem of my opinion on how those who live in oppressed countries want to be able to be free. Who want to feel the same happiness as the people who live in countries that don't face the same horrors they do, without having to leave their homes.
This also explains how they feel about the fact that we no longer have to ask for help from our government, we just receive it naturally.

They listen not when we speak,
When we yell, nor when we weep.
When we beg to be heard.
or dream for a word.

Yet they listen to those who don't need.
To those who may indulge in their greed.
To those who may speak words of freedom.
To those who know nothing of me.

They listen to those who don't speak
and see those who don't see.
A paradox that feeds on the weak.
in a world where silence is key.

We scream and beg for mercy.
For pity so we may feed our young.
To see them die of thirst.
Beautiful songs to never be song.

So should we close our mouths like the chosen?
Those decided to have eternal wealth for free?
Should we pledge to silently be broken?
No one will answer us, in a world where silence is key.
