Shall my words
become a guide,
For those whose voices go unspoken?
For those who've traveled a narrow solitary road,
Shall a wider, less perilous path be broken?
Will you realize you're not alone,
When I tell my story true...
If I make myself vulnerable
Revealing heart and soul to you?
For far too long our pain's gone unseen.
For far too long our voices fallen silently.
So, my purpose is to make us known..
No longer shall others deny us our reality
No longer shall we go unheard,
Nor permit others to make our choice.
No longer, in darkness shall we hide,
For in every word I speak, sonorously...
"I Hear Your Voice"
