Listen!

Listen!

Do you hear that?

To the words of the unspoken,

To the one, who no one sees,

To the child who everyone questions,

To the innocent who no one understands,

Listen, teacher, do you hear their silent cries?

 

Listen!

Do you see them?

The child who is all black and blue,

To the one who is crying in the back?

To the innocent who everyone ignores,

Teacher, do you hear their silent cries?

 

Listen!

Can you hear?

The beating of their hearts,

The beating of wild fists,

The sounds of distress,

Do you hear their cries of help?

Teacher, do you hear their silent cries?
