voice

they said our voices were too loud
so they did their best to muffle them
until we could do nothing
but whisper into the wind
then we stood up, broke our chains
as our voices reached the sky
vowing not to be silenced again

  11. Sometimes I think whispers can be the loudest as others have to strain to hear them. But there is a time to break free and speak up.
