Let me


Should I use my pen

or lips to talk about the things that trigger me?

And if I talk will you be able to listen and discern?

But why is that my gender

intentionally creeps and mocks at me?

Maybe I should be silent

like a dead bell but

How am I going to change this atmosphere called life with my voice unheard?

I want to be listened;

Without being categorized

Without being biased,

Without being interrupted:


Allow me to speak

Allow me to express myself

In my own language of mind

Then listen.

Please let me at least have

A chance to tell you

About my fear

About my hope

About my tear

About my cope

As awkwardly as they may sound

They may be vivid and sound.
