A funny thing about the freedom of speech
For some people it's far out of reach
I open my mouth with words I need to say
But they just don't come out the right way

To say the words and explain how I feel
Is not as easy for me, nor as real
When people talk they don't seem to think
Words have more meaning, written in ink

A pen in my hand, words flowing easily
My thoughts on paper sets my mind free
So for me I think this is my best choice
Because sometimes writing is my only voice
