Iran: Where is our Freedom?

Frustfriaraded inside,
Seeing young students die,
For freedom,
Without freedom we feel like slaves,
Tossed here and there,
Forced to do what the goverment wants,
Why God we have to be in this pain?
For 30 years?
My heart is beating,
Faster and faster,
Asking the nations for help,
Screaming to the world we want,
Peace, freedom, and hope to live,
In our country Iran,
We want a change!
Do our votes count?
They ask us to vote,
Yet it feels like they play games,
Without any rules and regulations,
Why do they play games with our minds?
Why do they kill innocent people?
Yet deny everything?
We just wanted freedom of speech,
And to be free, 
NOT slaves to be order around,
This country is perplexing and for our people is vexing.

    I can hear your pleas for support, must be most frustrating many in the West are trying to support you by standing up and being need only view to see proof of that! As well as writing yur thoughts and feelings try to describe the what you see in your writing...colour and noise hits out with further effect. Hope this inspires you further...

    Very of the moment piece. Your pen writes yur heart and mind clearly confused and impatient in your want for the peace we all yearn for. Continuous fighting of our nations only breeds another generation of angry and impatient followers. Has history of such taught us nothing in the ensuing years of war?
