Speaking up

I’m quiet as a mouse

Not a squeak

I dare not speak

I have a lot to say

I want to be heard

I’m tired of fitting in

I’m tired of compromise

What if they don’t agree

What if they think I’m silly

What if I never speak

Will I truly belong

Will I ever reach peace inside

Speaking up is the essence of freedom

Speaking up is my choice

Speaking up is standing up

Speaking up is what I will do
