Voice

I had lost my voice
In the din of crowd
Among those people
Who lusted for power
They wounded me badly
Scalded my flesh
With hot iron rods
Of crude words and phrase.

I endured them still
Waiting it to end one day
The day their soul
Will call for peace
But noise is all
That they knew
Used it in force
To drown my voice.

They shouted
And shouted
The tempo was up
I have had enough
And told them to
Shut up
Now I know a peace so rare
It ties my heart to the sky up there.
