"When injustice becomes law, rebellion becomes duty."


They tell me I'm as free as a bird, but the only birds I've ever seen are caged.
They tell me that I am whole, but in my spirit wars are being raged.
They tell me that I can do anything and be anyone, but it's all lies.
They tell me that life will be good, but I'm fighting to survive.
They tell me that I will do great things, but they haven't got a clue
Because they're all blind to the truth, so we'll never know what to do.


The author's comments:
Boredom in class led to the first line and then late-night uncaringness led to the rest. It's kinda suckish cause I wrote it on no sleep, but oh well.
