Everyone's Fight - Poem by Diane Meyer

How can you scream for justice
when you have no voice?
How can you fight when you are frozen
to your spot?
How can you explain
when they turn away?
You are a person too,
but at times
it feels like the world has forgotten
that you are there.
A small grain of sand
on an ever crowded beach.

Small fists
you raise,
your voice struggles to be heard
as the roar of the crowd drowns it out,
jeering,
teasing,
unfeeling,
but you put your foot down.

You will be heard
You will fight
You will explain
and they will hear you.

Your quest for justice,
but not just your fight,
everyone's journey
everyone's battle
everyone's rights,
that you fight for.

    In the struggle for freedom and equality, power must be focused on spirit and victory assured on will. Indeed, freedom is an inalienable right of every human being. A well articulated piece of poetry, insightfully penned with conviction. Thanks for sharing Diane. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report) Reply

    So many constitutions invoke equality. None embrace and support it. Thanks, Diane (Report) Reply
