who will hear your voice - who will hear your cry
if you just sit ideally by.
who will hear that silent voice, that doesn't make any noise.
that silent voice like the still of the night, wanting to move
but afraid to fight.
that silent voice that no one will hear because of that inner fear.
there are so many of you who are afraid to take sides
so in the darkness you tend to hide.
the silent voices that cry with pain, so their lives they rearrange.
when that inner voice cries out ' you are woman so stand up proud
and don't let anyone put you down.
if you have the strength for children to bare, then with other women
your voice you must share.
scream it from the rooftops and the streets below - show your force
so they will know. you bring forth life into this world and show
the love for every boy and girl.
when you can do the jobs of any man. this is when you must
take a stand. equal rights, equal pay so you can meet your
bills from day to day.
