"Life for you has been less than kind/So take a number/Stand in line/We've all been sorry/We've all been hurt/But how we survive/Is what makes us who we are." -'Survive' by Rise Against

Beat me down
Kick me to the ground
Drown out my words
With your lies
Cover their virgin ears
So they can’t hear
My tainted truths
You think that you’re
Protecting their innocence
But all you want is control
Of their minds
Of their souls.

Beat me down
Kick me to the ground
Drown out my words
But you will never stop me
I know the truth
And I will reveal it
Because everyone needs to hear
You try to control me
By suppressing my will
By breaking me
Yet I will not yield
My voice will be heard.

The author's comments:
I've always despised censorship and just how much the First Amendment is ignored when it comes to teenagers because we are not "adults" yet, thus our rights don't apply to us.
