A Roar

hearing of her pain,
she stood up,
and spoke out loud.
another heard.
another spoke.
forming a circle around
the wounded,
they bared their scars
to one another.
gently, they whispered -
'we are one.
we are not in this alone.
we are one.'
the chant grew stronger.
and stronger.
and stronger.
until a roar shook the earth.
and the world listened.
