Slaves Poem by James Russell Lowell

James Russell Lowell

Cambridge, Massachusetts

Slaves

Rating: 4.0


They are slaves who fear to speak,
For the fallen and the weak;
They are slaves who will not choose,
Hatred, scoffing and abuse;
Rather than in silence shrink,
From the truth their needs must think;
They are slaves who dare not be,
In the right with two or three.
