The meaning of my voice

oh how kind

I can finally speak my mind

but will you listen

or overlook my opinion

what is my voice?

 

The First Amendment

A constitutional right

or a consistent struggle

an urgent fight

 

Legally heard as a whisper

only through majority, a voice

but my case of minority

Do I really have a choice?

 

Speaking my mind

only to find

an everlasting wall

between me and society

 

Do not give in

This is not the end

You will be heard

 

By family and or a friend

Your peers, your kin

they are there for you

til' the end
