if given the choice

if given the choice
would you silence your voice
for your weight in gold?
if you could choose
would you purposely lose
for the sake of not doing as you're told?
or would you stand up and fight
start a revolution to keep your right
the youth of the nation
the result of inflation
the next generation
the latest creation.

the future lays within their hand
that, i hope, they understand

This does not only have a strong and important message , but it is also written with a wonderful flow and rhyme. Superb piece this one.

This is something that should be given in schools all over the world along with academics.
Awsome write.

This is Power! If the world was filled with youth like you, we would be living in hope, peace and harmony for the rest of our days. This would be Eden again. You have lots to offer to this world and I am glad that you are in it the same time I am. xxx kathy
