Day Of Silence
For those of you who don't know, the Day of Silence is in support of gays, lesbians and bis. Many people in my school participated. Teachers respected students who were a part of it, and if they had to, students wrote things down to talk. I was so inspired by this when it happened (I was unaware of it until my friend wrote down and explained it to me) because I have a lot of gay friends, and my niece is bi. So, in response I wrote this poem.
A Day of Silence.
The silence you hear is not for the weak.
Acceptance is all they seek.
The silence you hear is for the strong.
Who've kept to themselves all along.
Keeping from those who cannot comprehend,
And listen to the silence and the message it sends.
You have a voice, make it heard.
Just for today, don't say a word.
Thoughts and criticism welcome.
