I am the tears of ten thousand women,

Patiently waiting

Their time to unfold.

I am the cries of ten thousand children,

Voiceless and frightened,

A time to be told.

I am the arms of ten thousand mothers,

Aching and holy,

A love never old.

I am the hands of ten thousand lovers,

Searching and asking,

A place for their hold.

I am the prayers of ten thousand heros,

Nameless and silent,

Heard only by



Melody Harris
