We dream picket fences
but instead we make picket signs
fights and protest break out
now they checking your vital sings
graph lines go straight,
now your mother is crying
people with heart speak for what they know
but do you think it's worth dying?
Or are you just a follower?
I feel that speaking the truth but not doing it is un-tolerable
tell your partner to do as he speak...

Loved it. The poem is pretty unique, which is probably the most important thing; I can see you have room to get better though (as do we all). The last few lines seemed a little rush and ("I feel that...do as he speak"). What did you mean by do as he speak?

This is a very thoughtful poem. You have a very defined voice, which is a good thing for a writer!
