Proud Of Who He Is

They say he is a hapless fool

Who walks the streets unaware

Oblivious to the dangers

And doesn’t seem to care

That others are out to get him

To take his freedoms down

All because he always smiles

And never wears a frown

They say that he is different

And happy all the time

They say he should be crushed

Because he doesn’t have a dime

But he has something others

Just can’t seem to find

He is content in who he is

He has an inner peace of mind

So the next time someone controls you

And takes away your right to grin

Dream about a real freedom

And know human rights will win
