I am Silenced No More…

I asked the sky to open for me to know.

I asked the tree to shade me in my quest to seek.

I asked the fire to make known the answer
in the burnt ash of glowing embers.

I asked the mountains to hold me high so I could see.

I asked the rocks that have lived on this land since
ancient times to tell me.

I asked the ebb and flow of the ocean wave to part and
reveal the answer to me.

I asked the sands of time to let the answer slip through
grains of sand so I could see.

I asked the wind to whisper the answer in my ear.

I asked in so many ways "Why Have I been Silenced?"

I was silenced for my gender

I was silenced for my beliefs

I am silenced no more...
