Had I a voice
I would sing your song
Had I a tongue
I would speak your praise
Had I the time
I would live for you
But here, gagged and bound
To the floor and injustice
And waiting for death
I can only wonder
How you have breathed life
Into the thought that we give
Meaning to being
Only when we share and care.
