Voices ♥

Struggle

    “Louder! Louder!”

she said, while we raised our banners and signs.

We cried till our throats were sore,

the sweat dripping into our eyes.

“higher! higher!”

she cried, as our limbs began to fail us.

The eyes of the officials turning away,

their “deaf” ears turning red with shame.

For there is no greater struggle,

the struggle for our voices to be heard,

the struggle for recognition,

acknowledgement and acceptance.
