I have been writing poetry, fiction and short stories for many years and have completed a book of poems. I also enjoy comedy writing.
I speak because I have a heart and my soul is free
I express love for all nations because that is the way it ought to be
I care because the worldly things shall come to past
I live a life of goodness because dark deeds brings ones soul to loss
Don’t be supressed by groups with deep pockets of suppression
Speak what is right be an advocate for freedom of expression
Love all man as we are equal but different
We never chose how we came to be it was the act of that which is most magnificent
They fight for dominance of Earth, all are agents of evil,
Their hearts belong riches, but shun the care of the people.
Take a look around, everything you do is controlled
Your illness, your depression soon to take toll
Their petty wars and taxes which makes millions of war machines
Yet the world is polluted and needs to be drastically cleaned
Can’t you see we are trapped in some madmen plan?
When will the sleeping awaken and take a powerful stand
But as I look around I see everyone’s head down
Pressing buttons and tangled in the web of clowns
While they light massive fires to bring forth their burning king
Churches collect and look forward to tithes and offerings
Everyone caught up in their own corner of survival
Until it is too late and we are too weak for a unified reprisal.

I agree with freedom of expression for sure. Your poem highlights many of the problems we have in this world and the priorities that should exist.
