I hear voices

I hear voices from a far distance
Through the holes of high standing Himalayas
Through the cracks of charming Chinese walls
Through the murky river rushing down to us,

I hear voices from a far distance
From the small cells of squirrel size
From the dark rooms of rat holes
From the long lines of concentration camps,

I hear voices from a far distance
A woman wailing, for her dear husband
A child calling for her father figure
A monk murmuring for his murdered Lama

I hear voices from a far distance
When men in uniform are at distant
When the communist curtains are wide open
When guards at the gate are gone

I hear voices from a far distance
For the land they lost long ago
For the siblings they separated so long
For the freedom they lost long ago

  1. Not very difficult to understand the situations you write about – hope people, more of the right kind can carry forward the voices of those who can’t speak for themselves…..well-written!👍

  2. Your writing is most expressive, keep writing! You liked my poem Not Guilt on piecesoffive.uk and I have also written one called I Hear Voices, but I have not yet posted it. Happy to be connected with you. Best wishes, Five
