How can you be a rebel?

How can you be called a rebel,
When you are fighting
For your rights?

How can anyone dare call you a rebel
When you are fighting
For your people?

How can anyone dare say you are a rebel
Just because you are fighting
For what’s right?

You are not a rebel at all
When you are fighting for justice
In your community.

You are not a rebel in the least
When you are the voice
Of the voiceless.

You are not a rebel, for all I know,
If you are fighting for the truth
When only the truth shall set us free.

It is the one who blocks justice
Who is a rebel;
Like the one who is promoting cheating.

It is the one who stands on the way
Of truth who is a rebel;
Just like the one who spreads fake news.

You are not a rebel and it’s hard to see
How anyone can call you, of all, a rebel.
