Silence The Lie! - Poem by Sylvia Chidi

Silence, I say Silence
Stop the pretence
Halt the building of that fence
Between you and the truth
The truth can be rather intense
But wouldn’t you rather the truth
Than a lie be your preference

Why feed on
A lie so long?
Why shelter
A lie so strong?
When there is a fight
The only one flung
Will be you

Silence the lie
Before I cry
Silence the lie
Before I die
Because of someone up high
Like you and I
That ignores my cries
