Seeing young students die,
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.
