tonight i cry

let me cry tonight
weep and mourn
wail and rage
at the way
history is
told by the
victors
victims lie
silent and still
trying to get away
from the pain of remembering
let me weep and mourn tonight
for i have heard an echo
in this darkness
i am not alone
let me wail and rage
for the pain that stirs
with this retelling
righting wrongs
unknown to many
giving voice
to those
who cannot speak
for themselves.

Oh how I resonated with that one! I'm so tired of the lying ones determining the "truth."
