Through Opened Eyes (The Activist)
By [email protected]

Through opened eyes we clearly see
and answer the animal's plea
We must see what others ignore
so we alone unlock secrecy's door

We look inside the anguished eyes
and we have the burden to be wise
When others cover their ears
we are the ones to fight the tears

All of our strength it takes
to endure when our heart aches
When the images etch our mind
it's justice we struggle to find

The screams mark our soul
to end the agony our common goal
Silencing the wails cannot wait
in our hands we hold their fate

If only others would lend their voice
and for the helpless make the choice
With each action we destroy or defend
on each decision so many lives depend.
