View Full Version : The Voice Of The Voiceless

Ella Wheeler Wilcox

I am the voice of the voiceless;
Through me the dumb shall speak,
Till the deaf world's ear be made to hear
The wrongs of the wordless weak

From street, from cage, and from kennel,
From stable and zoo, the wail
Of my tortured kin proclaims the sin
Of the mighty against the frail

Oh, shame on the mothers of mortals
Who have not stooped to teach
Of the sorrow that lies in dear, dumb eyes
The sorrow that has no speech

The same force formed the sparrow
That fashioned man the king;
The God of the whole gave a spark of soul
To furred and feathered thing.

And I am my brother's keeper,
And I will fight his fight
And speak the word for beast and bird
Till the world shall set things right.

I love that, thanks for sharing. I just wish more people had that attitude.

Yes, if only....But it's up to us to teach them!
