Silenced Voice

Silenced Voice

My silenced voice,

Snuffed of noise,

Words gone far,

Hidden behind the bar


Thinking of my next move,

Of when next to move,

Watching and waiting,

For a life of baiting


I stand and wonder,

With all words set asunder,

Of the happenings around,

The evils that do abound


My cries were rejected,

Mine complaints rejected,

Do you see what's happening?

- Life's a sword that needs sharpening-

    Sasa Edison, karibu poetrysoup! That last part 'Life's a sword that needs sharpening' is very insightful. Without words silence cannot be broken.
