Voter Apprehension

Folks don’t vote no moreIMG_0169

They think they are above

Not realizing that it is feeding the very corruption they despise of

The voice of humanity is the one we need to hear

When you turn a blind eye what wins is the seat of fear

The people of my past, native, black and womankind

Denied this privileged voice, still today are left behind

Disenfranchised are the ones kept away from knowledge’s door

The common link of suffering, treading vastly on the poor

We can call them out together with awareness and a care

This vehicle democracy will no doubt get us there

It takes some time and doing

Dr King would proudly say

Shut down complacent blindness

Transform indifference
