Until your voice is heard, go change the whole damn world

Brighter than a white hot fire
Louder than a crashing tide
Bigger than a mountain spire
Higher than the wind you’ll rise
Until your voice is heard
Go change the whole damn world
Never giving up the fight
Gonna be a bright white light

I dare you.

I dare you to make me shut up.

I dare you to silence me.

I dare you to make me move.

My feet are firmly planted on the ground.

I deserve to not be murdered.

I deserve to not be told that killing myself is better than having a loved one live with me.

I deserve more.

And you aren’t going to make me shut up.

Nothing will make me give up the fight. NOTHING.

You can try to silence me. You can try to convince me I’m wrong.

But you’re the one who is wrong.

I am Autistic.

My voice is spoken – but is not heard.

My cries are loud.

My cries are for me and for my friends and for the ones who have been slaughtered under the guise of mercy.

Until my voice is heard.

I’m going to change the world.

I’m going to fight for my rights.

My right to stim. My right to live. My right to be me.

I’ll bare my soul.

Even when it hurts. Even when it’s hard.

I’ll accept being called out when I screw up.

You won’t crush my hope.

You won’t crush my shine.

The time for change hasn’t come, it’s fucking BEEN here for as long as humanity has existed.

And if your bigger problem is that I dropped the f bomb instead of the problem being that I am stripped of basic rights, then there is your problem RIGHT THERE.

Think I’m gonna give up the fight?

Think I’m going to stop yelling?

Not until you listen.

Sit down.

Shut up.

And LISTEN TO US.
Even if you bare your soul
Even if you shed your pride
Nothing’s gonna crush that hope
Nothing’s gonna dull your shine
The time for change has come
Watch as the colors run
Never giving up the fight
Gonna be a bright white light
