the first time i heard it i did not understand

why all those around me would not take a stand

why they ignored the child nor stood up for their word

why the woman beside me said to be seen but not heard

i was only a child but can still see the tears

the heartache and sadness through all of these years

though she was not much older than i by a span

no one would lend her a helping hand

i no i seem childish from time to time

and i know that my words always seem to rhyme

i know when i'm older and can be heard

i'll never say children should be seen and not heard
