A Voice Unheard

February 22, 2018

I’ve screamed out my lungs

Buried 4 feet in the ground
They can see me; they’re staring
But no one hears a sound
He shoved me and undressed me
And took away my freedom
He beat me and bruised me

And then the law freed him

If a man steals rials they’ll cut off his hand
But a man stole my body
And I am condemned
The crowd they throw stones
While they call me names
My family ashamed
Holding my breath through each sharp pain
Here lies my broken heart
And a pile of rocks to my neck
A voice unheard
An acceptable theft
