I Have No Price

I’m not a professional speaker
My heart doesn’t have a price
I want it to beat freely
Next to yours
Like a new born child to its mother
Under a warm sun without malice or vice

I don’t want to be political
I only want to tell the truth
If I may, can I speak freely?
To your heart
In ways that will bring us closer
In the world outside the voting booth

I don’t want to justify myself
I only want my heart to grow
It must live freely
Unencumbered
For if my selfishness hurts another
How will the seeds of justice find their row?

I don’t want to walk away
It’s not my desire, only my right
And while I live freely
I am not numb
I'm a seashell on your dresser
So you may hear calm and not a fight
