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.

I am the voice I am the voice
the repetition is done really well. It doesn't sound repetitive, even though it is.
Great job.

This is absolutely wonderful! I love the message and the format. The twist at the end makes the reader really think about life and that's what great poetry achieves. Keep up the good work! :)

I like that one person can judge and say so many things yet if they just look in a mirror, they are the same.
