Forgotten Voices

Like an animal caged in by
Hate, prejudice, and racism

Alone in the darkness
mute to the world around me

They say everyone has a voice in this world
I know there lying
Justifying the wrong does not make it right

Even if I had a voice-you would not listen
For I am alone, unloved, forgotten

For even I forget that I too am a human
I too can have feelings
I too can be loved
I too can share my opinions

I sit in silence hoping, praying, and waiting for the day when the light of hope will shine; and the key of justice will unlock me

I am Human
I am Free
I am Me
