They say keep your mouth shut
Don’t speak, don’t think
They say they know what’s best
Because they always have
Because they always will.
They tell you to look the other way
Because what’s right does not matter
Even if you see it,even though you know it to be true
Because they control what we see
When we see it and how we see it.
Ultimate power;hidden in plain sight.
They tell us when to act
When to feel rage, when to feel placidity
Our opinions are formed before we know what to think
Because it is how they secure the upper hand
Because it is how they remain in control
As long as our minds belong to them
As long as our words are stolen and distorted;
Our beliefs and values robbed and contorted,
Our mouths remain shut along with our eyes
Along with our ears
They gain from this weakness, profit off of our fears.
Our minds belong to us;
We speak freely because we can
Our eyes are open, observing.
Our ears are open,listening.
We sit and wait until the time is right.
Patiently waiting,silently hoping.
