My Words Will Not Be Silenced: Part 1

You know what happens to people who are silent in the face of oppression?

It builds, slowly at first,

and then faster, like a disease

festering.

My dear, if you keep quiet

You’ll be trampled under the ugly feet of those who take you for granted

Known and unknown.

Speak up. Make your way through the crowds,

Because there is nothing more beautiful than knowing your worth.

There is Grace in words.

There is Grace in the way it drips from the petals of your mouth.

There is no grace in accepting your fate- accepting defeat.

God helps those who help themselves;

After all.

Fear 

I feel the pain

So deep

in my heart

That I fear I will never be rid of it.

And I want

So bad

To be free

That I fear I will never taste freedom.

I see the light

So bright

Far away

That I fear it will never shine upon me.

And I need

A little

Love, maybe some Hope

That I fear will never come my way.

And I cry

Tears of blood

Mayhap cuz I know

My fears are the truth put to fruition
