Juliet Austin- is the Mother to three well rounded Children, the smartest most adorable little Boy calls her Grandma.

Silence breeds contempt

How much longer do we sit in contemptuous Silence

While the heartbeat of our generation is slaughtered in the streets

Vilified, degraded, disrespected

Would you in our shoe sit idle on hand's

Non-fisted, whilst your Children are brought to lay

like the rabid dog's you portend

Silence breeds contempt

The longer we sit in silence, the more contempt

You see through the eyes of hatred and fear

we who are Mothers, Fathers etcetera

see Potential, possibility for a bright future

What is the driving force

Is it the greatness that within us creeps, filling you with fear

Yes you..., fear us! The arrogance you see seeping through

Comes not from false pride, but from pride in knowing truth

Our refusal to be enslaved by a System designed to stem, stagnate growth

You call us Animals;

for destroying our community in the Name of Justice, (a smirk)

Yet you destroy your Neighborhoods for a Game

Football, baseball, Basketball. Misunderstood youth

I will no longer in contemptuous silence sit

Disclaimer: This prose was written as a protest piece while I watched the televised protest of the "Black Lives Matter Movement". Although my Children are not directly affected the Children who lost their lives belonged to someone. They had Families that loved and cared about them, and so I cared. I owe my principles and belief that People were to be protected based on my Childhood experiences in Jamaica. Neighbors protected and look out for each other's Children no matter the skin color, and religious beliefs, through my own personal growth I've added sexual orientation. and Abilities. The latter defining anyone having a disabling condition.
