The Voice

The Voice

A Poem by Kiera Scanlon

I am the voice of those afraid to speak,
I am the voice of those you call weak,


I am the voice of those alone,

I am the voice of those unknown,


I am the voice of those who've made a mistake,

I am the voice of those who can’t escape,


I am the voice of those you make cry,

I am the voice of those who dream to die,


I am the voice of those with scars on their hearts,

I am the voice of those torn apart,


I am the voice of those you blame,

I am the voice of those you shame,


I am the voice of those you hurt everyday,
I am the voice of those you betray,


I am the voice of those who are strong,
I am the voice of something so wrong,


 I am the voice of those who wrote a note to say goodbye,
I am the voice of those whose families were left wondering why,


I am the voice of those you offend,
I am the voice of you, my friend.

You have a unique style of writing...loving it. Love the 'I am the voice' on each line.

I like how you have, "I am the voice," on each line. It's a positive affirmation of human weakness and frailty. Much like psalms in the Bible. Well written !

Simply expressed. No additives or misleading speak. Who we are?

amazing poem...it is true...the voice that we often subdue to do things that we shouldn't do is ours...it is our conscience who speaks up to us...and then it is our choice to hear it or let it fall...the voice can guide us to harmony and peace.....with others and with ourselves...we just have to listen.
