voice of the voiceless

so many voices, some who choose to speak and some who talk too much 

the voices that mean the most, ignored, shoved and pushed to the side  

until the people who were gaged and fored to keep quiet chose to stand

we stand up to in the end take our seat

we speak up now so we teach others to in the future 

we need to stand tall as equals 

speak until everyone is heard 

we need to stand until we all can sit
