Telling me not to speak my mind
    is like telling a star
    not to shine

Giving me a pen and telling me not to write
    is like giving a bird wings
    and telling it
    not to fly

Telling me to keep my dreams a secret
    is like telling a chick
    not to hatch
    from its shell

My art is meant to be
    on display
Asking me hide it
    is like asking the sun
    to hide in the sky
