Hey, World

by Dana M. E. Alhaddad

Hey, world
Hey boys
Hey Girls,
Hear me!

Hey men
Hey women,
Yes, you
Hear me!

Hey one,
Hey two
Hey all,
Hear me!
My ears were yours
My voice within
Your thoughts exposed
On my poor skin!
Nevermore! See you
My mouth is opened
My thoughts endured
Long slavery!
No more, no more
The cell, no more.
No more, no more
The pain, no more.
Farewell, fear!
Drop dead, dread!
Long's been your stay.
Now it's your turn,
To hear my way.
Shut it, and listen
To me!
