there are many of us who are forced into silence...
- Silenced –

Silenced by material poverty.
Silenced by fear.
Silenced by worry.
Silenced by guilt.
Silenced by survival.

Silenced by education.
Silenced by the struggle for perfection
in a world that’s not perfect.
Silenced by growing pains.
Silenced by wisdom.

Silenced by the culture of contempt
sing praises and holler from tall buildings
to cynics and hard-hearted ones.
Silenced by superiority.
Silenced by rose-tinted glasses.

Silenced by prejudice.
Silenced by humiliation.
Silenced by insecurities.
Silenced by individuality
in a culture of conformity.
