Tales of the voiceless part 3

Children should be seen not heard

We lost our voices

Along with who we were meant to be

But they never stopped squeezing

Till some made sounds; croaks and cries

They thought we’d eventually speak, so they squeezed harder

But instead lives were lost

And our voices were never to be heard of again

Keep reading, it’s not over yet…

Stubborn little kids they called us

And yes, the stubborn ones did survive

Because we refused to give up

And we’d let our children know

Their thoughts, their voices matter

We will raise them to be better than ourselves

We will tear down the old walls and build new ones

Their voices, we will listen to

Because children should be seen

And our children would be heard
