Speaking Up

Sat, 06/28/2014 - 17:39 -- kfc1997

Who am I kidding?

You ask us to speak our minds

but really you just want silence.

You ask us to be ourselves

but really you want our cooperation.

You ask us to help others

but only to a certain extent.

You ask us to always be true

but you never allow it to be to ourselves.

You ask me to speak my mind

and for once

I speak it as all of me.
