Witness

A sour scene harasses me
I bite down on bitter words
Rotten souls parading
Wrongfully in heinous herds

Poison pours into streams
The stench violates the air
Choking's heard; muffled screams
The dictators call it fair

Refugees escape some lips
Few stand in brave breaths
Millions safe-kept secrets
More with nothing left

I witness wretched injustices
And carefully clench tight my teeth
My tongue won't make people listen
My hands shall take the lead

    When truth is revealed, it can not be hidden by lies. Good work, Jim

    I agree it is better to act than to talk about it. Well said words do have to be released sometimes also. Which you did here. Thanks for your comments. I posted it for the contest "Put your self in the reader's shoes." Love, Joyce
