Silent by Yenny Delgado

It is impossible to stay silent
 
When you know, it is impossible to stay silent
When you meet someone and recognize them, they become your neighbor.
When you know, it is impossible to stay silent
When you recognize your neighbor you start to care for them
When you care, you care as you would for yourself
Why do we do nothing-it makes us complicit in silence?
When you know the sins of your body and soul cannot be silent
When you meet, you accept the call
Because when you accept your neighbor, he becomes your brother and sister.
When you know, it is impossible to stay silent
In a land where we are all human brothers and sisters.
