A New Voice

by Sandra McCormick

You laugh and you taunt
Thinking nothing of us
Because we’re not like you.

We’re pushed
In the background,
Hidden away,
Thought of as bad,
Something to despair.

But we found our
Voice now,
Something you
Can’t take away,

We all now will rise,
It’ll be a new day.
We will fight
Your oppression,
You hate
And your greed.

Our voice will
Ring out now;
We’ll get the rights
We need.

These times bring change,
We will get what we want,
What we need,
What we’re fighting for.

So remember our faces,
Because you won’t soon forget,
What will do
To get our rights back.
