The Rage of the Voiceless

The Rage of the Voiceless

It is no wonder why we rage.

We speak to a crowd that refuses to hear.

We sing to an audience that cannot dance.

We cry in a society that cannot relate with our tears.

We run in the marathon that has no ending… and no beginning.

We are the voiceless.

It is no wonder why we rage.

We are the keepers of sorrow for the last 400 years.

We are the grieving mothers without graves.

We are the forgotten bodies lifeless under the sea.

Erased out of the history books with society’s whiteout

Silenced by the muzzle of the privileged hand.

We are the voiceless.

It is no wonder why we rage

We are challenger;…tired of waiting for our turn to come up when the line still doesn’t move.

We are the hungry;… empty tummies growling from the lack of nourishment that injustice leaves behind.

We are the visionaries; … holding onto a vision of equity that we have never experienced or seen.

We are the faithful;… Continuing to walk in the darkness while anticipating that a change is gonna come.

We are the gifted;…. crafting life out of broken pieces and the scraps left behind.

We are still powerful.

It is no wonder why we survive….
