Everyone has rights

i took the blame for more then one
and was singled out for what i had done
spoke up for right was put down as wrong
and so pen the words in poetic song

if you are courageous and you are
speaking out will carry a scar
not letting the crowd bully their way
will have a price for which you will pay

if you speak out, I’m sure you may
others will surely have their say
call you names and put your aside
tell you your wrong and full of pride.

Yet if we are 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 can heal or hurt
Help others rise or feel like dirt
We can choose the path that we will walk
Choose to be silent or choose to talk

If others are wronged before our sight
Will we be silent or be a light?
Will we be willing to take some shame
defending the dignity of anothers name?

Just thought I’d write for it seems to be
There should be a voice for equality
That somehow people should rise and say
“Everyone has rights, don’t take them away”

    • Hi this is in general . am very active in abuse forums. but.. let me say . .something happened in another forum that was suppose to be for the abused..I saw injustice..people being silenced for expressing their
      not wanting to believe in God. while those who believed in God were allowed to talk..

      I watched it happen two times the spoke up .. .. I was told by admins to leave..  My comment simply said that there was a grave imbalance in the forum..where people were trying to heal.. that if people choose not to believe and want to say why..they should have equal rights as those who choose to believe and say why.. That was what I said. I was silenced ..and asked to leave.. but people should be free. and I will say it till i die. .everyone has rights: straight, gay, believers, non believers..  

      This had nothing to do with this forum as I only come here on occasion.. and should come more..so please no one take offense.. I just believe everyone should have equal talk time. and If people choose not to believe. they should not have to have faith pushed on them. I am at the point that I dont know what to think

      Please dont feel badly of me.. as I really accept all people as my friends and think healing places should not be prejudice..

    • I have had many from the other groups.. on f/b ask for it so I suppose its something that others must be feeling inside too.

      I have always felt that people should have equal rights..

    • Love the poem!

      Generally speaking I don’t mind when people voice their opinions. I do have a problem with calling someone out in a public forum and is nasty. Or using blanket terms.

      If I offend say something one on one. Don’t do it to publicly humiliate me. And we all need to keep in mind when it is online in this kind of format tone and intention is always up for interpretation and perception.

    • Well done Joy!! heartheart

      I’m all for everyone’s rights. My only problem is when people need to resort to name calling or being condescending to another when they have nothing better to say. Those tactics irritate me to no end.

      And well said Vikki! heart
