Challenge Response by Melba Christie – I must speak up

My heart speaks up all the time

but the thoughts are only mine.

My soul speaks up frequently;

but my soul swears me to secrecy.

However today I must speak out loud

I must make at least, Mrs. Metelitz proud.

She always told us to take control of the shroud.

She told us to take a stand

and if we must,


even reprimand

what is wrong,

what is untrue,

oh yes, and whoever wants to misconstrue.

I must speak up

I cannot hold my tongue

It was ok when I was too young.

Today is the day;

when I must say,

what I feel,

Because I cannot believe

what we are all living is really real.

I must speak up before something even more horrible occurs

like more deaths because of ignorance and grave errors

or a war in the midst of this health crisis.

We must decree justice.

I am here to tell you

we must all unite.

and not allow partisan politics win the fight.

We need truth and honesty;

we cannot allow any more of this travesty.

Our democracy must prevail;

and propel our ship with the toughest of sails.

Our journey has been hard up until now;

but together we will make this virus kowtow

to our firm stance and belief

that God will help us get through our grief.

Our Nation of the people,

is our principal value;

one for all and all for one

United we will win the run.

God Bless America.
