The silent majority


We sit back quietly
As we watch the meltdown of society
We are the silent majority
We want to live life peacefully
However we are subjects to the minority
We believe in equality and coexistence
We believe in freedom of choices
We have loving hearts
Yet if we cannot agree we are forced to take part
Why can't we live our lives our way
And those who disagree just stay away
Pushed to change our views and distort reality
Governments change the laws for the immoral minority
They say if I live this way
So must you starting today
Hitler Stalin Castro and all the past rulers and kings
Have worn Satan's ring of authority
Over the silent majority
Why
All we say is if you want to live your way
Just let us live life our way
We respect but may not like the way you live your life
But it is your choice
Why do we have to listen to your voice
We live behind closed doors
The minority post their lives on open boards
One day we will have had enough
We will not be bullied no more
And just like in the past
Our silent voices
Will be heard
Like a lions roar

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

It is the hour when from the boughs
The nightingale's high note is heard;
It is the hour -- when lover's vows
Seem sweet in every whisper'd word;
And gentle winds and waters near,
