Because sometimes you need to listen
You need to hear what it is that other voices are spewing out onto the pavement
What it is that is choking at their throats and twisting at their tongues
Scoop it up and make it your own
Chew it up, understand
Because for the first time in a long time they are speaking on their own behalf

Like the first cry of a baby their voices will scream in your ear
They will irritate, agitate, you will cry “it’s hate”
But listen
Just listen
Because it is now that they too have found their voice.
