Bleak Fate

I want to live!
Live without the suppression of who I am.
Live without the regret of what I should be.
Live without the tolerance of guarded emotion.
Have a ritual of union
Without my freedom denounced
Praise my courage, god damnit I've earned it.
I salute the red, white and blue, although we still attain hatred in our minds.
Because what is freedom when a vote determines my happiness?
