How we lost our voices

Written by: Edward Dzonze

We 
SHOUTED
and 
we 
got 
busted

We 
WHISPERED
and 
we 
were 
tortured

We 
casted 
our 
voice 
on 
paper
but 
it 
had 
no 
reader,
it 
was 
nullified...

Question 
it 
and 
you'll 
get 
charged
either 
for 
banditry,terrorism 
or 
treason
so 
that 
you 
rot 
in 
jail
and 
will 
never 
cast 
a 
wrong 
choice 
again

That's 
it ,
we 
kept 
our 
choices
all 
to 
ourselves
and 
by 
so 
doing 
made 
one 
sure 
choice;
we 
would 
see 
our 
children 
grow
