Voices

Raise not your guns

But your voices instead

Form bullets from words

Not powder and lead

.

Guns are but tools

Used for oppression

It’s with voices raised

That we’ll fight for freedom

.

They’ll try to use violence

To force our silence

But we’ll raise our voices

And stand in defiance

.

With air in our lungs

And words on our tongues

Our voices drown out

The sounds of their guns

      • yeah…that is true…if you came across one of my poems entitled, “Blood splash” you must have felt the pain i was expressing…..there is a warfare in Africa especially between the government an illegal militia groups…there is bloodshed here and there……anyway, check out my latest poems, “Spring” and “There is a River…”
