File #1552018

Your story isn't told or passed along
Automatically
Stored on files,  numerically ordered
Miles and miles of cabinet's of every moment ever documented
History of every person
Saved for later reference

Your voice is not heard
The wall's and the doors and the window's make sure
Or broadcasted on speakers in the streets for all to hear your deepest thoughts and private fears
The secrets that you hid for years

Your choices are your own
Just for you to make alone
Hiding in silence or let it be known
For this you must open your heart and your soul
Share with the world and for all it is worth
Being at one with your part on the Earth.
