Thereafter

Silence is surprisingly misconstrued

Even when masks of sound wear off

Absorbed words can be overwhelming

Open eyes staring at offensive approach

Speaking of taking away the rights

From life, a life is offered unsatisfactory

A disgrace when unable to choose

Imposed speeches utter false nobility

A flimsy cloak of freedom is insufficient

Hiding behind the recklessness

Striking with a sense of vengeance

Improper information can be debilitating

If applied as a balm over the truth

Patience erodes to expose the barbarism

Stern words of vigilantes sting sentiments

Within every fold hides scary reasoning

Man scorning another has no moral liberty

Guilty cannot pronounce a verdict

A silent promise to uphold life of dignity

Is an invocation in times of turmoil
