Sunday Stanza: Poem Thirteen – If The Community Had Spoken By Hannah Williams

Our people are broken;
But what would happen if the community had spoken?
If it had said we are here for the mental,
Our hearts won’t be judgemental.

Our people are broken;
But what would happen if the community had spoken?
And said we are here for single mums.
We saw your journey we know where you’re coming from.

Our people are broken
But what would happen if the community had spoken?
We are here for those with criminal records.
We’ll help you achieve all the good you work towards.

Our people are broken
But what would happen if the community had spoken?
To those who face unemployment issues
And just offered them a shoulder to cry and a box of tissues.

Our people are broken;
But what would happen if the community had spoken?
For the small children who face hunger day to day
And spoke to the government to have their say.

Our people are broken;
But what would happen if the community had spoken?
For our elderly whose water bill run high
And asked the electricity companies why.

Our people are broken;
But what would happen if the community had spoken?
Maybe our people will be less heartbroken
And unity will be our token.
