FLYING HOPES

FREE ? AM I ??

I just started to breathe
and they closed the window on air..
I just started to see
and they put a blindfold on my eyes..
I just started to hear
and they banned the source of sound..
I just started to speak
and they want me to be quiet..

I am not allowed to be my own
to speak, to hear or to see
and they say I am free!!!

Will I be given a chance to listen?
a chance to tell?
Or I have to go back to my shell??
