Song of Silence

My spirit rides on every mantra of life. 
Songs for God, 
mantram of love, 
mantram of pleasure.

As I depart, further 
I see one who´s blinded me, 
rhyme and melody seem to be 
burning my ears.

Song of sobbing souls; 
known to me, 
but only half of other men. 
I never heard them play it in America; 
the Senate, 
the United Nations 
or Human Rights Organizations.

The blood of the oppressed, 
Man showers in crimson! 
The bitten wives 
or the girl sold as an asset. 
Nobody hears the song, 
nobody sings a praise.

Can I take the journey on my own? 
I can sing by myself!

Can anybody hear me?

    I have been misunderstood and now at the age of 31 I am independent in mind and thought much more so than financially self-sufficient with a job working 30 hours or less per week ideally. I know I need help to stand on my own two feet but I'm getting there and it will take mistakes for me to learn how I can sing all by myself. In my past I felt no one cared to hear my voice and opinion and let me tell you that is the worst feeling. You feel small and you feel angry and upset at those people...

    our society orders the norm for what we must do, but we need to fight to abolish this unfair or unjust culture of men.. As my view we are all born to share equal rights for all gift of the land. thanks for reading dear poetess regards jett
