DEAFENING SILENCE by Chuckie Africa
Don't yall hear cries of anguish? In the climate of pain come
but voices become unheard and strained by in-actions
of dead brains...
how long will thou Philly soul
remain in the pit of agonizing apathy?
In difference seems to greet you like the morning mirror
look closely in the mirror and realize its a period of mourning...
my sisters, mothers, daughters, wives and warriors
languish in prisons' obscurity like a distant star in another galaxy
as does their brothers
we need to be free
How loud can your silence stay?
stand up with courage and have a say
choose resistance and let go of your fears
the history of injustice to MOVE you know so well
But your deafening silence could be my DEATH KNELL.
