SSHHH…. SILENCE

In a crowd of people,

A chaotic mess,

A rowdy crowd,

All I hear is silence

Sssshhh…….

Silence.

In a horde of persons,

And a mass of men

A swarm of folks,

All I hear is silence

Sshhhh……

Silence.

Silence that taunts

Silence that haunts

Silence that demands answers

Silence that tears me apart.

Ssshhhhhh…….

Silence.

What of the Children of Syria?

What of the women in Yemen?

What of the fathers in Palestine?

What of the brothers in Egypt?

Ssshhhhh……

Silence.

What of the veiled Muslimah?

What of the imprisoned Sheikh?

What of the detained innocents?

What of the bombed civilians?

Ssshhhhh…..

Silence.

What of the terrified little boys?

What of the brave stone bearer?

What of the starving little girl?

What of the devastated mother?

Sssshhhh…..

Silence.

People are nothing more than statistics.

Civilians nothing but collateral damage.

Innocent ones nothing but mistaken identities.

Brave souls nothing but armed terrorists.

Sssshhhhhhhhh…….

SILENCE!

This silence is deafening.

Choking my insides.

Twisting my guts.

Tearing me apart.

Ssssshhhhh…..

Silence.

I refuse to remain silent.

I refuse to turn a blind eye.

I refuse to block the truth.

I refuse to watch quietly.

The silence is no more.

I refused to stay silent.
