our hearts and voices will be free



This poem marked an anniversary; it’s dedicated to all those who are unjustly silenced.

All things pass. Our day will come. Our hearts will be free. Our voices will be heard. 

When lies are told, the truth unfolds. Even if it takes lifetimes. 


hearts in jars

a short poem

by punkie


two years ago

fine lies were told

they crush me to this day


your prison bars

put hearts in jars

dead silent I must stay


grave harm was done

to more than one

our scars will never fade


yet time remolds

what truth unfolds

greed’s debts will be repaid
