Condemn

I stand silent.

As to speak would mean my own death.

I stand silent.

As the rivers run with the blood of the innocent.

I stand silent.

As my fellow women hang from the trees.

I stand silent.

As their screams ring out.

I stand silent.

As they drag them from their homes.

I stand silent.

As I face my own judgment.

I stand silent.

As they condemn me to death.

I didn’t stand silently.

As I faced my death.

I cursed them all.

I showed my truth.

I stood silent.

And now we are all condemned.
