A Lone Voice

I have been writing poetry since my teens. Over the years I have been published in a variety of anthologies, hubpages and letterpile.

She stands

A hush descends... waiting.

Some would think that the words that follow

Are emotional.

They are however, carefully crafted.


Being a woman, some would rather she was not heard.

Keep her in her place.

A questioning or analytical mind is respected

But in a woman?

Well that is a different matter.


We surely speak of of bygone days...

Do we not?

There is no shame in speaking truth and having integrity.

So stand tall and speak out.

Even if you stand alone.
