The Silent Speaker

Dear Society,


Have you already forgotten me?

For seventeen years you haven’t let me be,

But when I speak out you turn your back.

Is it courage that you lack?


You claim to preach serenity,

Yet your words have no sincerity.

In reality you speak without meaning,

And your whole demeanor is demeaning.


It’s you that causes violence,

And when it happens you sit in silence.

I guess I was mad from the start

Because when I spoke you tore me apart.


But in this poem it’s just me and you,

It’s time for you to learn the damage you do.

You can’t run from it. You can’t hide.

For the evil you harbor lives inside.


I hate the way you run things

I hate the negativity your presence brings

But what really is society?

Is it you, me, or we?
