Free Speech

did I have the right to express my feelings
once I was ignored, unread, unseen
like a smidge of gel
drying liquid on lotus leaves
a stupid reminder of a scab
on rusty leaves... reminder of falls
then I let go and words flowed
like a floodgate opened to allow
emotions out into the vast sea mingling
with the tears of man of the earth
and angels of the sky alike
I sang my songs
to storm hidden heavens

are like children
you let out into the world
you hope you have done
a good job of moulding them
so that they are well received
