RIGHTS ARE NOT GIFTS


"RIGHTS ARE NOT GIFTS FROM GOVERNMENT"

Have you fought for your rights today?

Have you protected your rights today?

Did you know it's your right as a human being?

Or did they tell you it was because a thing between a citizen and country?

Rights are not gifts because they are not granted upon him, her, you or me.

They are implied to us from the day we step out of our mother's pregnancy.

So can they take something that they didn't give to us in the first place?

Or is the government crossing the line when they take away people's rights?

Go ahead tell me, but it's up to you and me to change these fucked up things.

It'll be a fight each day with the government in one corner and us in the other.

But know your not alone in this ring because we're all counting on your victory.

Please don't throw in the towel & continue to let the government violate rights.

Rather use these words to get strength and keep going to fight one more night.

Kick ass with love and devotion because that is where all great changes start.
