when little people speak up

When little people speak up,

When the veil is lifted,

When uncertain steps

break into assured pace,

When a bent head

suddenly looks up

with burning eyes,

Who with conscience

can ignore?

Who with a just heart

Can deride?

Is it a sin,

to have dignity?

To have self-respect?

To finally find one’s voice?

When nuns in cloistered convents

Rise and shine,

I am sure,

There’s joy in heaven.
