Voices on the Wind
Voices of Protest
by Michelle O'Hearn
While appreciating the honesty in the truth of people’s words
There is some danger in the anger when reviewing what’s been heard
News media selects battles that bewitch the public eye
While Natives wrestle with their lives in a silenced battle cry.
Should someone tumble the monuments and relics of modern past
Surely another would adopt the issue and squash the perpetrator fast
They who is “they” say no propaganda exists
That only foreign bodies manipulate the citizens in their midst
Yet no channel on the television shows me what persists
Of Indian Nations fighting a war for their land alone
As the silent majority chooses the next topic to resist.
