Unheard Voices

If only I had a way

To amplify

My voice

But

It remains faint

Traveling infinite miles

Just for you to

Hear me,

Them,

Us,

He,

We

The voices

Of the lost

Lend us your ear

Open your mind

See with your heart

And may our voices

Become painstakingly clear

Over the everyday blues

The what ifs

The confusion

The grief

The strife

And

Anything else

That deters you

From

Hearing me,

Them,

Us,

He,

We

The voices

Of the lost

We are calling to you

From a land

Completely occupied

With unheard voices

To speak…

You need to know

We

Forgive you

We only want to

Grant you

Peace

From the pain

Of our innocent blood

Shed in the name of “fear”

And uncertainty

Because certainly

You couldn’t possibly

Be

Our mothers

Fathers

Brothers

Sisters

Sons

Or daughters

For they cringe at every

Loving memory

Those you never knew

Because of things

You assumed you knew about me

Them,

Us,

He,

We

If only we had a way

To amplify

Our voices

But

They

Remain faint

Trapped

Reverberating sound waves

Infinite miles away

Longing for you to

Hear them,

Us,

He,

We

The voices

Of those lost

In the name of uncertainty
