Express Ourselves As We Wish

Democracy is about freedom of speech

Anarchy is, without a doubt, the opposite

Of democracy, liberty and freedom to wish

To hope, to dream and to confront defeat.


Brothers, sisters, express ourselves as we wish

Never, never be afraid or fearless to tell the truth

If possible or reasonable, go on the summit of the roof

To tell it like it is, to exercise freedom of speech.


Democracy ought to be a celestial or divine gift

Love was given to us at birth. Don’t practice hate

There’s no place for racism or hatred on Earth

Life is about living until we meet with death.


Brothers, sisters, express ourselves as we wish

Fight for your birth rights to express free speech

Love will take us a long way. Love is about peace

Reconciliation, compassion, fraternity and justice.
