Everyone has rights (repost)
I took the blame for more then one
and was singled out for what i had done
I spoke up for right was put down as wrong
and so I pen my words in poetic song
if you are courageous and you are
speaking out will earn you a scar
not letting the crowd bully their way
will leave you with a price to pay
if you speak out: I’m sure you may
others wil also have their say
they'll call you names and put your aside
tell you your wrong and full of pride.
Yet if we're silent before the wrong
Freedoms would die out before too long
Only the bullies will rule the day
The meek, the hurting will have no say.
We are the ones who heal or hurt
Help others rise or feel like dirt
We choose the path that we will walk
Choose to be silent or choose to talk
If others are wronged before our sight
Will we remain silent or become a light?
Will we be willing to take some shame,
And defend the dignity of another's name?
Just thought I’d write for it seems to me
There should be more voices for equality
That somehow people should rise up and say
“Everyone has rights, don’t take them away”
