FIND YOUR VOICE

A cratered few
Will  join the fray
Emerge from darkness
Find their way.

Stand alone 
Stand erect
Most of them 
Were left for dead.

With dust filled lungs
They gasp for breath
Choking ….  coughing
Drenched with sweat.

They dare to speak
They dare to dream
They must be heard 
They must be seen.

The mighty voice
Is heard at last
It can’t be hidden
It can’t  be masked.

Rejoice …. for change
Emerges victor
Stand with me now
Brothers and sisters.

The racial slurs
The hate … the violence
Can at last
Be crushed …. be silenced.
