Who are we then?

Who are we then?
If we do not speak up
And keep our heads down

Who are we then?
If we do not express our emotions
And keep our passions bottled up

Who are we then?
If we do not let ourselves be seen
And keep our presence in in-existence

We are
Alive, without life
We are
Voices, without sound
We are
A face, without a name

Who are we then?

Well put. I loved the repeated phrases; they really added appeal to the meaning of the poem.

Who are we then? We are unknown to the world. We are strangers to all but ourselves. A bit tragic, really.
