    While it's still free...

    Let me leave you with this
    my words
    because they will be taken away shortly
    hidden behind closed doors
    and abolished behind treachorus endevours
    Excuse me in advance
    Because I want to whisper in your ear
    Some words while they are still free

    They say we can say what we want to say
    If that's a fact then why do they bolt our mouthes shut?
    Close down our facilities and quiet our leaders
    How did you hear about that movement they say
    As they come to you with guns exposed and cocked
    You speak languages that are past their understanding
    They want to get to know you
    So what do they do
    The put a tax on this
    freedom they tax our speech

    So what now?
    Give up, strive or fight?
    How about keep going, strive fight and think
    If there is one thing they can't take away is our
    Ability to think?
    Or can they

    While it's still free
    Listen to me
    That voice in the back of your head is haunting
    It's about to get real real soon
    Are you ready
    Soon it will not be free

    Speech...

    To imagine life without freedom of speech, well, other liberties have been taken away, some never really given. Something to ponder here, I liked the way this was posed.

    this was a good poem.
    i often write on this same type of topic.
    just freedom in general is what we need.
    real nice drop.
    basic vocab and str8 forward
    but deep and got its point across to the reader nevertheless.

    stay up.
