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.

*Claps* You, Kiera, are one of my favorite writers on this website and that is hard to say when there is so much talent on here. I love the rhyme. I am a poet that loves to rhyme and read rhymes from other writers. The deep message held in this makes me want to pat you on the back. I love the support you have for the..uhm, I guess you could classify them as the "outcasts." You are a nice person and this is an awesome shout out to those that this addresses. There is too much bullying going on these days. There needs to be more people to make it stop and have enough courage to stand up and sternly say, "Enough is enough!" I am adding this to my favorites.

This was inspirational for me to read. We need to stand up for those that are less fortunate, bullied or just don't have hope in this world. We need to share a smile, befriend a stranger... truly make a difference. Thank you for sharing this write... I really enjoyed it!

For those unable to speak up it can be lonely and suffocating. Only true friends who care will have the courage to stand up and be the voice.

A splendid piece with a powerful message. This poem should be posted in every school, in every classroom. It evokes emotion and empowerment. I relate to each and every word. Hope you don't mind, I had to share it (with all credit due, of course)

Wonderful write.

Every bully should be forced to read this and understand it. I don't know if it has anything to do with bullying, but that's what it made me think of. Marvelous work.

I am tempted to interpret this as the voice of a poet, though it could easily be one person (or one person's conscience) speaking to another. A very rich piece in terms of interpretive possibilities...I enjoyed this one and was very intrigued by it. Well done Kiera.

Your conscious will always loom large ever present like an invisible, redeeming spectre!

Enchantingly penned, a terrific piece of poetry !
