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…”
