I CAN FEEL...

 



I can feel the silence straining,
About to burst out from the seams,
To shout that no one should be hushed
When on the grand pursuit of dreams.
And for those who are not heard
We ought to raise our voices higher,
Everyone deserves the chance
To chase what sets their soul on fire.
