Tales of the voiceless part 2

Part 2

Children should be seen not heard

They made us mute

And when we were finally adults

They broke the seal

But we had been silent for so long

And our voices were long gone

Now they squeeze and squeeze

Trying to force us to speak

To be continued


I promise It’s only part 3 left

  1. Nice piece. Let’s anticipate for the full package.

    I think the world is tending to listen to the voice and needs of the children than before. Though our old mind set have to be changed to actively listen to the children.

  2. Nice, things that happen but one can’t give words to it or the occasional frustration that results because of it. Indeed the voice of the voiceless. It’s very nice. Waiting for the part 3

  3. Well written! And your tales reminded me of Arundhati Roy’s words, “There’s really no such thing as the ‘voiceless’. There are only the deliberately silenced, or the preferably unheard.”
