Silent Scream

As performed at Kwani Open Mic July 2010

Sunshine, Sunshine, Shining Through
Lighting up, the sky so blue
Sunshine, Sunshine, is it true
The tears you cry are red in hue?

Smiling, Smiling, a cheery face
Shining through from a secret place
Hidden from view, beneath the surface
A twisted, painful ugly furnace

Crying, Crying, silent tears
The soundless scream that no one hears
Broken, Tattered, a heart that fears,
Shadows jeering, mocking her cries

Mirror, Mirror, reflect the truth
From within our souls’ depth
Let us see the rot and filth
And break this destructive myth
