Voices Heard Above The Wall Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar


If you want to try out new adventures,
And not be censored...
By those peeping through a wall.
If you want to try out new adventures,
And not wait to be censored...
By those who wish not to live at all.

Keep your faith,
When doing something to adventure.
And keep it not to fake...
Voices heard above the wall.

Just keep your faith,
When doing something to adventure.
And keep it not to fake...
Voices heard above the wall.

Climb every mountain that you see,
If it's wished.
And reach for the stars,
Or anyone you pick...
To pocket.

It is yours.
If you claim it.
It is yours,
If proclaimed.
It is yours.
If you claim it.
It is yours,
If proclaimed...
To give it a name.

If you want to try out new adventures,
And not be censored...
By those peeping through a wall.
If you want to try out new adventures,
And not wait to be censored...
By those who wish not to live at all.

Keep 'your' faith,
When doing something to adventure.
And keep it not to fake...
Voices heard above the wall.

Just keep YOUR faith,
When doing something to adventure.
And keep it not to fake...
Voices heard above the wall,
Calling.
Those voices heard above the wall,
Calling for a change.

Voices heard above the wall...
Calling.
Those voices heard above the wall...
Calling for a change.
Those voices heard above the wall...
Calling.
Those voices heard above the wall...
Calling out your name.
Those voices heard above the wall,
Calling.
Those voices heard above the wall,
Calling for a change.
Those voices heard above the wall,
Calling.
Those voices heard above the wall,
Calling out your name.
Those voices heard above the wall,
Calling.
Those voices heard above the wall,
Calling.
Those voices heard above the wall,
Calling.
