“I am the voice of the voiceless”- Ella Wheeler Wilcox

Part 1

Children should be seen not heard

Those were the words inscribed on our walls

And we grew knowing we didn’t have a say

We spoke and we were shunned

We grew older and spoke and we were shunned

Our voices they ignored

We tried to make it louder

But instead, they sealed our lips shut

To be continued…
