We the people

a poem by william andrews, Greece

may be im simple
but i dont understand
why do we hide
in the lands
of twisted speach
why do we hide
from the words
that will give us
alittle freedom
that will make us
head held high
when we see the light
within the eyes
of our child
so why do we hide
from the old
the young
the crippled
and the ones
yet to come
why do we agree
to be called words
not of our name
of twisted meanings
that do nothing
but decay
the very nature
of the light
that used to shine
within their eyes
that used to make you
proud to be alive
yet we hide
