I Wanna Be Heard

January 5, 2009
By Sahar Turner, Pittsburgh, PA

I wanna be heard,
Like a blue bird,
In the bright sky,
I wanna be seen,
Like a statue,
Sitting high,
I wanna be felt,
Like a soft,
Pinch of snow,
I wanna be heard,
Through the tall grass,
In the meadow,
Plowing through the fields,
All day and night,
The life of a slave,
Just aint right,
There's no way this world,
Is how it should be,
Because I know in my right mind,
I'm supposed to be free.
