Silence is Death Printable Version PRINTABLE VERSION
by Henry Ekwuruke, Nigeria Mar 29, 2007
Health   Poetry


In the world of AIDS
Speaking out is the key
No progress if no one to do so
Unpleasant facts we must face

We stand a chance to make history
Or failure yet unmatched
Death to our brothers and sisters through our inaction
We, whose mouths are shut

In our ruthless world of shut up!
Stand up and let's sit you down
Believe me we have a common
But differenciated responsibility to deliever

There isn't an Us and a Them
One people; one identity
One gender; one humanity
Our life begins our progress

Inside a precious world built on knowledge
Left out to die of a disease
Where silence equals death
Let's talk to stay alive for today is promising
Tomorrow is beautiful and hopeful!

Silence is Death
Henry Ekwuruke | Apr 12th, 2007
This peom express the power of voice to the fight against AIDS and suggest that speak out is greater than silence and it in the light of the above that the future we hope to inherit would become more brighter and beautiful. If we could speak a little out today!
