DEFINITION OF RIGHTS

Youth with their rights But no responsibilities Youth with their rights But no minds or thoughts How am I supposed to look up to you? How am I supposed to know right from wrong? With no person showing appreciation With no youth being thankful How am I supposed to act responsibly? With no one educating me of my past How am I being proud of my human rights? My freedom of speech What does my freedom of speech tell me? Some say my freedoms of speech tell me to say…………………. What I want……………… When I want…………………and How I want………………….. But no one tell me the responsibilities No one tell me how to apply my freedom of speech Educate me of my rights Educate me of my past That’s not enough Educate me of my human rights I roam every single day about the come from of my human rights My roaming even turns me demented I too am ardent to know my past I too need to know I search and searched but my searching turn’s futility And I rouse in darkness Educate me of my rights Educate e of my human rights
