BECAUSE I AM NOT WEAK

Read Time:33 Second

www.facebook.com/WRRPoetry [Because I Am Not Weak]
I speak because I must
And not to gain your trust;
What applause shall I get
If folly leads to death?

I see a candle light
A flicker in darkness’ might;
What mounds shall babies suckle
If their bellies start to giggle?

The world remains an acreage
Where ducklings come of age;
What leaves shall heifers chew
If grasses lose their hue?

Does the sun refuse to rise
To curse the helpless sky?
I shall not cease to speak
Because I am not weak.
