Many Voices

Many voices cry out in agony,

Many voices are left out.

Many voices are heard in the outrage,

Many voices are left out.

Many voices have many perspectives,

Many voices ignore many voices,

Many voices have many reasons.

All different, few with bad intent,

Yet, many voices assume they know

Those many voices whose voices

Whispered a different name

In hushed tones, away from the newsman

Voices hushed from opposition

Voices who cannot be heard

A stray whisper met with a roar

From those who ignore many voices different than them
