Day 102 - Silenced

I don't speak, you don't see
But then again it's not only me
You have me locked in the dark
Too frightened to make my mark
Why not listen to what I say?
Why always side with 'they'?
They who exiled Galilaeo
Censored many a book and show
They who shackled men to be slaves
Like those living in caves
No one can prove the majority is right
Now when we have entered such a night
So instead of scoffing when you eye my shirt
Stop a moment and think of all the hurt
That such attitudes have caused before
And pull away from the hateful core
