Years after years
Being pushed to silence
About what’s right
For the good of what we do
Has finally ended.
A single event has prompted
Because someone dared to speak,
Causing others to finally listen
After so many previous failed attempts.
Now, a light is shining brightly
On the source.
The camouflaged problems
Have surfaced to the top.
The questions asked reveal
Truths that can no longer be denied.
The rally cry has begun and
We’re not gonna take this anymore.
We are beaten, frustrated, exhausted
From years of ignorance.
The facts speak for themselves,
And I will not sit idly in silence
For I have found my voice,
Ready to use it without fear
To break down silos,
Making things right at last.
