We’re all entitled to our opinion
Yes, of course!
So why the constant beating; all these bruises you’ve bestowed
An opinion is shared with the knowledge of reaction…
Agree to disagree is no longer an action?
Must we always pull out swords when an opinion differs from ours?
Should we aim to kill a soul with our utmost power?
Such a taste it leaves in your mouth–never savored something so sour
Darling, understand when not to speak up.
Speak up? Or speak honestly?
Does such exist anymore?
When fear of ridicule overpowers the voice in your mind
You don’t make self-made decisions– as if you were blind
By society, by this idea of fitting in
I’m okay with walking solo if it means I’m honest within
Being told to stand up, otherwise, you’re a coward
Being raised to the top then pushed from the tower
Being told to stick out and then burned to the ground
Are we better off not making a sound?
Listen here, it’s a tough world, not everything will be as you wish!
As I wish? You mean peaceful?
You mean kind? Accepting maybe?
For all these lies we’ve been told about freedom of speech
The voice to say anything
“..But not this, don’t do that – it’ll start a commotion”
I could care less!
…because regardless groups of people will continue to hate
With no one exactly, with no common purpose
Just to thrash at your happiness
Could it be the possibility that you’re doing this “life” thing right?
Don’t give up sweetheart, that’s right you should fight!
Fight for what exactly?
Why fight? Why not harmonize?
Why so much evil? Why all the hatred?
For what on earth are we gaining for hurting another being?
Do envy and anger disable us from seeing?
Open your eyes open your heart
Stop spreading this evil, stop pulling people apart
Take this as a message that opinions unwanted
They are those ceasing to leave others feeling so haunted
For sharing their ideas, for vocalizing their thoughts
If you can’t accept my views, I refuse to wrought

This is great. You’re completely right – people tend to stifle their opinions and what they have to say to avoid conflict. and then people don’t stand up when they see something that’s wrong and the cycle just keeps going. very well done
