Voices unheard

Listen, listen to that sound
Are you able to hear it?
The sound of people crying
Listen carefully, can you hear it?
People crying out for help, in deperation
Deep into the night
With hope they are heard
By anyone at all
Listen again, listen carefully
For the sound that tears my heart
Into little tiny shreds
Can you hear the cries?
From people who are scared and afraid
From people who don’t have anything
Not even food to eat
Even a place to sleep
Can you hear it now?
The desperation heard
Within their cries
Watching their children die
Holding onto their lifeless body
Now, are you able to hear it?
The cries from the suffering
Torned world in which we live
Walking passed, as if nothing happened
Can you hear it now?
The cries, slowly fading into the night
Never to be heard again
