For the Silenced

You spoke up – they yelled to drown you out
Their red face, clenched fists
Creating confusion and doubt 
You were loud – they were just louder
You were strong – but they held the power
You’re still here – you’ll scale the tower
There’ll be hell to pay as you remember
You’ll stand up and let your strengths be
The rocks to shatter their faulty thinking
Get loud, then louder, use that rage
Throw those rocks, take the stage
You’re strong enough, you always have been
No longer silenced, your voice, your weapon
You’ll stand tall, and take on this fight
Demand what’s hidden step into the light
