If I have freedom of religion,
Why am I ostracized for my beliefs?
Why do people argue with me?
And try to sway me to their side
When I say I do not believe in God.
If I have a freedom of speech,
Why am I told to hold my tongue?
Why am I silenced when I try to voice my thoughts?
Why do those around me undermine my attempts?
If I have the freedom that so many live without,
Why do I still feel trapped?
Why does it seem that those freedoms are not guaranteed?
Why does it seem that those freedoms are not for me?
