Won By a Whisper

Speaking louder than any scream
Screaming from the rooftops
Screaming in the woods
Doesn't seem to resonate
Like
Screaming behind the wheel
Don't scream at your family
Don't scream at yourself
Just tell the truth
And
Own your heart
Use words to speak
Your mind
Everyone will not agree
That's OK
That's their right
But so do you
Have those rights too
So use them
If you might
Encounter those
Who force upon
You
Something feeling sort of slight
You can kindly disagree
To be gracious is always right
