Charcoal Skin


I am the voice of those afraid to speak,
those of us that society calls weak...
Those you ridicule every day,
the ones who have nothing to say...
We have feelings too, okay??

I am the voice of those alone,
the ones abandoned and on their own...
The ones who hide their pain in their eyes,
those who you never saw cry...
Those of us you just pass by...

I am the voice of us you forget,
the ones of us society regrets...
Though you see us you don't care,
Whether or not we are here...
And us, like shadows, slowly disappear...

But as for now we're still here
As for now I will not fear
As for now I'll stand strong
